I completed my project in Motion, but need to marry it with another piece in FCP. When I open the Motion project in FCP, there is flicker. It looks like a field issue, but I can't figure it out. Video is due to client today and I'm not sure what else to try. Any thoughts?
A lot of flicker problems are caused by a TV interlacing footage. Long story short, you only see the odd or even fields on the TV at a time. Because of that thin lines disappear and cause a flicker. If that is the case I would add a Flicker Filter the the clip in Final Cut Pro. Hope this helps and best of luck.
I'll give that a try. (I've got a piece rendering now...) The Motion piece I'm importing to FCP is 90% graphics so the flicker is like black fields that pop up every once in a while. When I look at the project in Motion- no black, but in FCP, black flickers. Ugh!
Trying on more thing, then I'll send the project file along to you. Thanks, so much! Do you think it could be a FCP sequence setting issue? A few days ago, I exported a low-res version to send to the client for review straight out of Motion and it had no flicker. (just remembered that)
