Motion files render as black
on Apr 30, 2010 at 4:26:31 am

This has been bothering me for a few years now, and I'm wondering if anyone has a solution.

Whenever I try to put a Motion file into Final Cut, the unrendered video looks fine. However, when I try to render or export it, it renders as a black screen. This problem can be avoided by exporting from Motion and then putting the resulting .mov into Final Cut, but it's a pain and makes it difficult to quickly change things in the Motion file.

If it helps, I'm using Final Cut Studio 2 with all of the recent updates installed on a 2008 Mac Mini running Snow Leopard.

Your problem is that the Mac Mini is not a supported machine for Motion, as it has an integrated graphics card.
