Hi Francisco,
Export the stuff directly from Motion and bring it to FC.
Cheers,

Hello Rafael: Nothing works. FCP doesn't want to open any Motion files. Not even new ones. At this point, will you recommend to uninstall and install the suite again?

As keen as Apple are to suggest that you can drop Motion files directly onto a FCP timeline, in practice it is slow, unreliable and generally to be avoided. Render them out from Motion as ProRes 4444, the default now I think, and drop them straight onto your FCP timeline - if this is ProRes too, no rendering will be required.

Avoid all .motn files in FCP wherever possible - it's just another area where FCP needs a massive overhaul.

No Francisco. Don't break your head and fallow Ben advice.
Export a self-contained movie frm Motion and import to FC.
The round trip FC-Motion-FC never had worked properly.

Does that mean that I have lost the FCP projects that have been working for the last four weeks?

Why should mean that?
You take the file from Motion and you import to the FCP projects where you have been working for the last four weeks.
