Exporting from Motion to FCP
on Nov 9, 2005 at 1:48:06 am

I've receintly created a text project in motion, just a few basic titles. I saved the project then went into FCP and tried to import them into my graphics bin. As soon as i tried this an icon came up that said an error was detected, one file was recognized and another wasn't. Then i went back into motion and re-saved the file and exported it as a quicktime movie. This worked except when i placed the text file onto my video track in FCP it had the black background with it instead of the text key'd properly over my video. Not sure if i made a mistake in motion or FCP? Any suggestions?

First, check the alpha channel for the clip brought into FCP. If it is all white then ...

Second, check to see if the project's BG color in Motion preferences is set to 0% opacity before rendering.

Third, make sure there is no background layer or element that might be opaque. Check the alpha channel in the Motion canvas as well.
