Imported objects appear transparent ?!?
on Feb 27, 2009 at 6:27:02 pm

I have created an .avi file from a powerpoint project, and imported that into motion. There are two moving objects within the file, and when I throw it into my project all of the other assets within the file appear to be fine. Only I can't see the two moving objects, instead they appear transparent. I have tried everything I can think of (hardware acceleration off during recording, color background, lighting off, and even converted into a flat .mov file) and still the same problem...

Any ideas?

Avi and Powerpoint are both not exactly 100% compatible with Motion. I'd open the AVI in QuickTime Player and re-export to ProREs or Animation instead.
