Display issues like that are almost always related to the graphics card, not the OS and not the applications. Your problems appear at the moment to be related to the updates you ran but that may only be coincidence. While I've seen several issues with Apple's latest OS update to 10.4.10, yours is unique.

It's really impossible to tell from here what might be wrong, sorry, but reloading the application is likely a waste of time. Repairing permissions was not on your list of stuff you tried. Do that. You can safely trash the preference files for each of the applications (although you lose your presets and window layouts and some other personal settings). FCP does not use the same GPU resources as Motion and LiveType so I'd keep looking at the card as a culprit. I can't tell you why DVDSP refuses to launch.
Spend your efforts on other likely causes. Visit the card mfr's site for updates or maybe they have a user forum.

Next to last resort: Try resetting the PMU for your Mac (research that carefully).

I hope you get better advice. Try searching and posting at apple.com's forums for hardware and Mac OS10 issues. Please return to this thread (and any others you have started on the same topic) to tell us what you did to solve your problem. It will help future seekers.

Repairing permissions worked

I took your advice repaired permissions with Disk Utilities, something I need to do more often. After a short repairing pro apps are opening up just fine. I have not used them yet, but everything appears to be fine.

Thank you so much

My pleasure, glad it was so simple!

And thanks for closing the thread with a positively solved resolution. Hardly anyone ever does that around here.
