It looks as if you're trying to use FCP as a poor substitute for an effects & compositing application like Motion or After Effects. I bet you have Motion at least. You ought to use it.

So how did you make it? Where did the footage come from? Is the flare from stock footage? I'll guess that's why you're having fits.

Codecs of the footage and the edit timeline are helpful to know, as are blend modes, alpha channels, etc.

Yes because my boss doesn't want me to use different software other than FCP because it was licensed T_T and I haven't use motion yet because I'm still new in FCP.

about the footage I made it on photoshop and most of the layers are on PSD type , but the lensflare is on FCP effect then I set it to travel matte alpha

If you have FCP, you probably have Motion 4. While I don't recall of the top of my head, Motion 4 probably has quite a few lens flare presets. Why don't you give it a go? If you can keep it simple, it might not be too daunting.

I've had weird issues like this every once in a while depending on where the effects come from. Just for grins, go into your timeline settings in the Sequence Settings tab and change the Processing to 8-bit rather than 10-bit. It's a long shot, but it might work.
