I've never thought of motion as an alternative or replacement to AE. I use both frequently and both excel in their own way.

Motion is integrated into FCP in a way that AE cannot. As a tool it is perfect for templates/dropzones and using right in the FCP timeline. It is also the tool I will jump into for quick and simple motion graphics. It's replicator function for example is much more manageable than AE's options.

I will use AE for the more complex jobs especially anything that dictates a lot of pre-comping or close-contact with 3DS or C4D. I also prefer it for composting work.

I've not encountered many crashing issues with Motion, certainly not to the extent to which you seem to be suffering.

As I say, in my opinion they are not tools to be seen as alternatives, but complimentary to each other.
