    Hi, i have final cut studio pro 5 running on a mac book 2.16 Ghz with 2Gb ram

    I recently attempted to add motion (version 1.0.1) and all seemed good until i try and do anything in motion because as soon as i do, it cashes.

    After opening through ctrl click - show package contents - Mac OS - Motion (i.e running through terminal) i end up with this following error:

    Last login: Mon Feb 11 15:42:21 on ttyp1
    /Applications/Motion.app/Contents/MacOS/Motion; exit
    Welcome to Darwin!
    Vinces-Macbook:~ vince$ /Applications/Motion.app/Contents/MacOS/Motion; exit

    x86 Warning PSWAP_gliGetInteger:97: pname: unknown enum 988 0x3DC UNKNOWN
    Segmentation fault
    logout
    [Process completed]

    Sadly, i simple do not know enough about the terminal or this level of computer language to work out what it means..... Hence the post, please help

    Thanks in advance, Vince

    I assume since you are running Final Cut 5 that you are running Motion 2? There could be a couple of issues causing the crash. First, Motion isn't designed to run on a Macbook. The only laptop it is supported with are the Macbook Pros. I have heard of people running it on Macbooks but with mixed results.

    Secondly, I have heard a lot of people having problems running Motion 2 on Intel laptops. When I first installed it on my Intel Macbook Pro, it crashed every time I opened the program. I wasn't using the true universal version, so that might have been the problem. When I upgraded to Motion 3, it worked fine.

    You might check Apple Support/forums for more compatibility details.

    try deleting the .plist file. Have you run motion before on your computer?

    Motion needs............

    Just for your information, I am regularly using Motion for editing my videos on my MacBook baseline model. In fact, other than a bigger HDD and 2GB of memory, it's the most basic MacBook model you can get (got them when they just came out).

    Motion runs fine. I use it for all sorts of editing, including using the 3D features of motion. I have videos I've produced using it.

    Just wanted you all to know that before getting all smug thinking you know how it works.

    Sorry. Over the top smugness. I'll try and be more humble in future.
    By the way, motion doesn't edit, it's a motion graphics application.
