Motion - exporting QT - jerky graphics!!
on Feb 29, 2008 at 12:28:37 pm

Hi

When i export QT from Motion 3 (using best render settings etc) and preview in QT player the graphics look great. BUT when i import it into FCP they appear jerky and really clunky when there is movement.

Has anyone experienced this and if so how do you fix it???

cheers

have you tried dragging the project straight into the FCP timeline without rendering?

Two things....

First, don't render in color (although you can, it may not be necessary.)

The workflow is to drop the project directly into FCP.

Render there - and look at your materials on your broadcast monitor to really judge the quality.

If you'd like to look at it inside of fcp, make sure you're looking at FCP @ 100%

What codec settings are you using to render out from Motion? Do they match your FCP timeline? I'm guessing that they don't.

I'm rendering best quality in Motion (animation, best render) and have ticked best quality rendering in fcp too...where should i be looking for the codec settings for a comparison between the two?

cheers

Never made sense to me to render out of Motion with the animation codec, bring it into FCP sequence only to render it to that codec. Why not match the render out of Motion to your sequence settings. Or just bring in the motion file and render it in FCP.

the only thing is that to render a Motion project in FCP (that is, NOT exporting the Motion file as a QT, but just importing the Motion project into FCP) takes a HUGE amount of time to render in FCP...but maybe the quality would be better? i'm testing that right now...we'll see.

thanks again!

I wasn't recommending that they bring in the motion file, just not to render to a codec that would need rendering in FCP. Render out of Motion to the codec you have for the sequence.
