I put my 7D footage onto my computer this morning and saw that it was choppy, almost like it was dropping frames. I do not own compressor but I heard that there was a way of fixing this issue in motion. Basically I want to fix the dropping frames and make the footage smooth.
You should probably fix the footage instead of trying to fix it in Motion. This would be a bad idea considering the fact that you need to edit in Motion. Get a good converter like MPEG streamclip and fix the footage before Motion.
As to fixing dropped frames I'm not sure where you heard that from. There's nothing in the manuel about fixing a movies dropped frames.
