Only White Canvas
on Sep 23, 2006 at 8:04:23 pm

When I launch Motion 2, I only get a white canvas. I assumed I merely had a setting wrong somewhere.

I just purchased "Getting Started with Motion" and loaded one of their starting projects and I still just get a white canvas. It seems to play, but nothing shows up.

I have a Dual 2.3 GHz PowerPC G5, 5 GB DDR2 SDRAM, and an NVIDIA GeForce 6600 in Slot-1 and a GeForce 660 LE in Slot-2 and three 17 in Samsung LCD monitors at 1280X1024@75Hz running off those two cards.

Am I just out of luck on the video cards (Apple says the 6600s work, the book says you need 6800s)?

Any ideas?

Check to make sure you are not looking at the alpha channel (or any single channel) in the Canvas.

Apple reports that you may only use one video card in a Motion system. I submitted a bug to the bugreporter site at and they marked it as a duplicate. The solution for me was to take out the second graphics card.
