I'm cutting a piece from a variety of inputs, all transcoded to Apple Pro Rex 422, 1920 x 1080p. I created a motion project with the same dimensions, which is a drawn shape, but when I add it to the project in Final Cut, as a motn file, not as an .mov, it makes me render. Since this entire project is going to be this type of motion file over footage, I'm trying to figure out if there's a workaround, or a change in settings, I can use to make it doable. Each render take 5 minutes.
It does the same thing when I output as a .mov file, btw. So no saving time there.
Any suggestions appreciated.
I'm on a MacBook Pro, 16g ram, Mac OS 10.8, Final Cut 7
