40 Sec Motion 3 Project Won't Open
on Jun 2, 2010 at 7:29:41 pm

Hi Guys

I'm aware that I should keep Motion Projects to 30 secs. A 'big' project that won't open for me right now (spinning beach ball then Motion crashes - I have to use 'Force Quit' eventually to close Motion) is approx 35 secs with lots of baked layers.

I've trashed prefs a couple of times and can create a new project without any problems.

Unfortunately I can't open this 'big' project'.

Any tips about how I can retrieve it would be really appreciated. Perhaps I should delve into the 'Autosave' feature?

For some reason I'm not seeing the 'Restore from Autosave' option.

"Choose File > Restore From Autosave.
The Restore Project dialog appears. "


Warm regards

Auto save is the best place to start. Also take a look at this article it may help: http://support.apple.com/kb/TS3061

Hi Stephen

Thanks very much for the info and link - opened an 'autosave' file directly from my RAID and I've got it back again.

Thanks again

Peter

You have to love the Auto Save feature. It has saved my bacon more then once.
