Yes, I did. There were no problems with my disk and problem still occurs.
Yes I did, and all updates are installed. Makes no difference, Motion and DVD Studio pro both still crash the moment I start them. I work under OS 10.7.5, as is also mentioned in the crash report.
No, I even have uninstalled all Motion files, reinstalled Motion, so without any 3rd party plug-ins and the problem still remains.
No, that didn't work. I got the following reaction in the Terminal:
BigMacWoody:~ BigMacWoody$ rm ~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.motion.plistBigMacWoody:~ BigMacWoody$ rm ~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.motionapp.plistrm: /Users/BigMacWoody/Library/Preferences/com.apple.motionapp.plist: No such file or directory
Yep, the problem still occurs
The Motion folder is in the Final Cut Studio folder under Application Support. I dragged the Motion folder to the Desktop, but unfortunately, Motion still doesn't open.
There are no receipts with names begin with 'Motion' in that folder. Do I still need to continue? I have reinstalled Motion before, with no result.
OK, so if I understand you correctly I should first try to remove and reinstall FCS entirely by using the fcsremover software. If that doesn't work, I follow your previous advise.
Great. However, I'll do that tomorrow. For now I call it the night (I'm based in The Netherlands). I'll let you know the result tomorrow. Thanks so far. Bye, René
Hi Mike, the problem is solved. I reinstalled the OS and now Motion is working again. The only thing is that my internet is very slow. Very much slower than on my MacBook Air, which is connected to the same network. Any idea? Thanks for your support so far.
Yes, both using wifi through the same network
What system are they both running? Go here with both and run the speeed test:speedtest.net
I'm running Lion (10.7.5) on my iMac and Mountain Lion (10.8.4) on my MacBook Air. I'm using Safari on both machines. I'v done the speedtest with the following result:
iMac Ping 14ms, download 5,08 Mb/s, upload 5,38 Mb/s
MAcBook Air Ping 41 ms, 9.70 Mb/s, upload 5.51 Mb/s
OK, seems to help a little bit. Still the difference in downloading between the two seems to remain more than 3Mb/s. Don't know if that's normal.
Anyway, only a minor problem compared to my Motion issue.
Thanks a lot for your help. Have a nice weekend.
