Motion "Field Order" setting not being honored by Final Cut Pro

Advertisement

I was having a doozy of a time bringing Motion files into a Final Cut ProRes 4444 Timeline (the entire project is basically motion). While my field order in both Motion and my Final Cut sequence was set to none, Motion text and graphics became blurry once I dragged them into Final Cut. I finally realized that (after stumbling upon this post http://discussions.apple.com/thread.jspa?threadID=1967373) that Final Cut was resetting the field order of the Motion project to Upper. It was said in this post that this was a bug. As this post was from April 2009 and it seems to still be happening, I'm assuming the bug hasn't been fixed, but does anyone know of a workaround avoid having to go into each Motion file in the timeline and switching the field order manually? Thanks!

AFAIK, you have to switch them manually. You can select multiple clips, do ⌘9, then in the multiple selection window, right click on the Field Dominance and one at a time, set it to None (or whatever you need). It's pretty quick.
