Actually I am sure it was a motion 3 template. I created some some lower third templates in motion 4 on my mac pro, a while ago, for a client and his older Power Mac. To create the motion 3 templates I used a method that Mark Spenser pointed out on his Web site I just made sure that I did not use any motion 4 features.

HOW TO OPEN MOTION 4 PROJECTS IN MOTION 3
"Yes, you can open a Motion 4 project in Motion 3. It’s actually quite easy:

1) Launch TextEdit
2) Choose File > Open, navigate to the Motion 4 project file, and open it.

It opens in TextEdit and looks like this:



3) Change version="4.0" to version="3.0"
4) Save

That’s it! Your Motion 4 project will now open in Motion 3. Of course, any Motion 4 features, such as reflections, shadows, depth of field, or new behaviors won’t work, but all Motion 3 features should work fine. "


I moved the old templates out only. And sure enough the blue issue is fix. I opened up the templates in motion 4 and resaved now I have them back as master templates for Final Cut Studio 3 and my Final Cut Pro X works perfectly.

Hopefully that info helps you out Jon. I love your tools!
