    So, I went to use Motion today, I clicked on the little dock icon, and, boom, nothing happened. The icon did a pathetic little bounce, and then nothing. Every other program in Final Cut Studio works, but Motion just can't seem to bring itself to start up. So, here I have the crash log incase it helps. It seems like I'm missing a file, but I reinstalled Motion (twice), and I still get the same thing.

    Does anybody know? This is kind of a urgent issue, since my current project requires Motion.

    I had the same problem with my MacBook Pro, and just solved it. It looks like on the MacBook Pro machines, Final Cut Studio doesn't install the Helium.framework. I have no idea why.

    What you need to do is download the latest Pro Applications Update (http://www.apple.com/downloads/macosx/apple/proapplicationsupdate200602.html), and use the "Show Package Contents" command in the finder to get at the Helium Framework Installer. From there I used Pacifist (http://www.macupdate.com/info.php/id/6812) to install the Helium.framework folder in the System/Library/PrivateFrameworks folder.

    Motions starts normally now.
