Need some help on a tif import.
I have tif sequences created with embedded Alpha at 1280 x 720.
Basically they are 3 individual layers of an animation that I now want to comp into 1 final product.
When I bring them into a Motion project, the images are being clipped to about half the frame, and blown up to fit the width of the frame. When I look at the original in my file browser it shows the whole picture, but it wont import the whole picture. My preferences are set to "do nothing" on file imports. I've checked the files in photoshop, they seem ok both fill and alpha wise. 1280 x 720, 8 bit, RGB. Here is the kicker, if I go into photoshop and give the file a solid Alpha channel, it will import just fine.
I've tried importing into different comp sizes, all with the same result.
I can do my comp in AE, but it is confusing me as to why it isn't working in Motion.
Any ideas, or similar problems?

Interesting, You are correct, I open a file in photoshop, and save it as a psd and motion doesn't have a problem. I am so used to exporting tif sequences from the animation programs...but I see it will do psd and psd layered. Guess I'll have to change my workflow
