The software originated as India Special Effects Titler Pro from Prismo Graphics with a user interface that resembled Adobe After Effects.[2][3] It was acquired by Apple Computer and bundled with Final Cut Pro HD in 2003. However, its functionality was largely superseded by Motion and it was no longer included as part of Final Cut Studio 3 in 2009.[4][5]
