FCP - Motion Round Trip: Motion Blur?
on May 11, 2009 at 6:31:25 pm

H1.

I am doing some round tripping from FCP to Motion. When I work solely in Motion, and export a final file, an option for adding motion blur is available (which I almost always use). I don't know how to use/not use this option if I am round tripping. I make changes in the Motion project, and it reflects in my FCP timeline, but where do I choose to use motion blur?

Thanks!

Totally different results.
Motion Bur in Motion is a shutter speed simulation. if something is moving, physically or geometrically, the open shutter will smear the move.

Motion blur in FCP is a frame sampling and blending algorithm. Looks like anything BUT "motion blur."

You need to explore them throughly to decide which you really want to use.

Hi Bogiesan

I don't need to decide, as I know I want to use Motion's motion blur. When one does a round-trip into Motion from FCP, the clips that were on the FCP timeline disappear, and are replaced with one clip representing everything that happens in the Motion project.

Where the problem lies is where one usually chooses to apply motion blur in Motion, which is in the export dialog options. Only with a round-trip there is no export of the final Motion file because it's in the form of a clip in the FCP timeline that changes whenever you make a change in the Motion project.

So how does one choose to use motion blur in this "round-trip" scenario? Anyone?

Hi Chad,

I am sitting in the same boat with you! ;-)
Could you find an explanation for the problem? Did you open a Bug report with Apple?

I am also bluring ;-) so at least I have an indication now where the problem is related to...

I am working with FCP 7 (Final cut Studio) and have exactly the same problem. From a certain point FCP is not round triping any more to Motion. It takes the audio and the right file length and opens this then in Motion. But Motion shows only a froozen frame from somewhere in the FCP timeline. The audio en clip length are correct in Motion... but there is no video.

I am looking forward to hearing from you.

Regards,

Mario

Hi there!

I can see that this is an old question, so I guess you guyes already solved
the "problem".

For those of you finding your way to this thread - here you are:

In FCP you have to go to Sequence > Settings ( or hit command + 0 )
Then choose the Render Control tab.
In the "Master Templates and Motion Projects" square, choose Best Quality.

This will tell FCP to render the motion blur you´ve applied in Motion. It will
also add to the number of coffecups you´ll have a day as render times will
increase dramatically ;-)

Guys I'm glad we revisited this, as I have a project that could use a little motion blur.

In Motion, I have never seen a setting (OUTSIDE OF THE EXPORT DIALOGUE BOX) for Motion Blur. Under "Export / Options Button / Output Tab" there is a check box for Motion Blur. But I don't export files any more from motion, as they are large, so I bring the project into FCP. If I drag the Motion project file onto the FCP timeline, I am not "Exporting" out of Motion, just using it as a clip in the FCP timeline.

Questions: Is there a setting within a Motion project to add motion blur? Or will using "Best" render option in FCP somehow turn on motion blur in my embedded Motion project?

Please advise.

Hi Chad my brother,

Look in the "view" menu under "Render options" and you should be able to toggle motion blur canvas settings. alternatively you can press "option+m" to toggle it.
