Motion2 won't boot
on Jan 13, 2007 at 4:07:49 am

I need some help, I can't get Motion2 (2.1.2, really) to boot anymore. Just started out of the blue. Never have had a problem in the past. I am using an intel mac pro 2.66, ati1900, 6g of ram.
When I attempt to open the app I get the opening screen for a few seconds and then nothing, screen goes away and nothing has happened. I have disabled all the fonts except for system fonts.
Not sure what else to try. I have reloaded the software several times, nothing. Any ideas?
thanks
Bill

Try deleting the preferences file.

I have the same exact problem, but I have just finished installing Motion 2.0 on my mac book pro, went through the tutorials, started the program (made a new file), it took a few seconds to load all the windows - then everything just disappears! It's so frustrating... I was really looking forward to using this software. What should I do?

Well in your case, you shouldn't be using Motion 2.0 on a MacBook Pro. You should be using Motion 2.1.2, which you get with the Final Cut Studio 5.1 Universal, and one more round of automatic software updates.

The fact that Motion 2.0 even launches on your system is a testament to how good Rosetta (the PowerPC emulation layer) is :-)

I'm unsure if you've discovered the answer to this - I have experienced the same problem.

I had a G5 and installed Motion fine. Bought the new macbook pro and motion won't boot - I get the welcome screen, then choose anything and it loads, shows me the interface for 1/2 second and then crashes out. I've got the Motion 2 software but have downloaded upgrades to the most recent version. I really need to work this problem out as I have people interested in Motion work and this is what I got a lot of work through last year!

I was really surprised that my super duper macbook pro was not able to run an older (not THAT old!) version of Motion.

help!

I'm running Motion 2.1.2 on a MacBook Pro. It was working fine until today - all of a sudden it doesn't respond at all when I try to "Save" or "Export." If I close my project, it brings up the dialogue "Do you want to save your changes before closing?" so I hit save but then Motion quits unexpectedly. Here's the log from my console:
