I am editing a commercial on FCP 7. I had a clip that was round-tripped to motion (a .motn file extension) that the client did not like. I laid a matte over the motion clip and added text and a JPG logo for the restaurant. Now when I try and render, I get the following ERROR MESSAGE: Codec not found. You may be using a compression type without the corresponding hardware card."
I changed from unlimited RT to safe RT. Still got the error message. I've had this error message before and I fixed it by changing under Audio/Video Settings/Sequence Presets/Video Processing selection TO RENDER IN 8-BIT YUV. Didn't work this time.
Anyone have any suggestions? Is the .motn file screwing up the rendering? Feedback greatly appreciated.
