'general error' and 'out of memory' messages...
on Feb 22, 2011 at 3:44:31 pm

I was working with a project in motion, which when exported to FCP and into the sequnece caused the 'general error' and 'out of memory' error signs.

I cant be out of memory, its a brand new mac tower with added RAM and a 4TB G-Speed es added to it as the scratch disc.

When I put in the original clips before the motion project, when prompted I changed the sequence settings to match the clip settings.

Should I have done that? Im not quite sure what the ideal Sequence settings should be and this is pretty demoralising given the workload I have :(

Anyone any suggestions?

There are lots of reasons behind the "out of memory" error message and a search of this forum will explain many of them. There have also been lots of posts about problems and instability in using Motion templates and round tripping.

Yes this subject has been tackled many times on these forums - the culprit in my case is usually oversize stills

Did you save the Motion project and imported it in FCP?

or

Did you export a quicktime movie from Motion?

or

Did you send a clip from FCP to Motion and then hit save?

I did both the first 2 options.

With the first option you always will have to render that in FCP.
Motion 3 always exports a quicktime Animation file , if you don't change export settings
Motion 4 always exports a ProRes 4444 file , if you don't change the export settings.

What are your current Sequence settings in FCP?
What are the properties (size, codec ) of your created Quicktime movie from Motion.
