What is your workflow?

Motion has a DV Pal format setting. From there you just need to make sure you're using the proper codec for export. Avid uses their own codec, so you should be able to just export Animation and import into the Avid.

The problem is that "horrible" is not a descriptive term so it's near impossible to suggest anything.

You should upload an image of the problem, and give a description of each step in your workflow that results in the problem.

Remember, no one is seeing your computer and your problem. The answer isn't something as easy as "oh, just hit the Not Horrible key".

One thing to try is to not embed the alpha, but create a separate alpha clip and use the matte key effect in Avid.

I'am making a project in Motion D1/DV PAL lower field first. Background color black and transparent. I export using Lossless + Alpha movie. Premultiply alpha is checked. and i don't kown if i have to check motion blur, frame blending.. When i import the mov to avid. it imports fine but i have to go to matte key and invert key to be transparent. and quality is not fine. My avid project is 25i PAL (SD).

thanks

Hi Joao,

Did you ever find a solution? I'm in the same situation, export from Motion looks fine (when I test i QT player), but when I import into Avid my graphics looks like a low resolution draft. Working SD 25i PAL just like you did. Have tried various settings...nothing seems to work...
