Motion projects in Final Cut 6

Advertisement

Hi I'm new to Final Cut, Motion and Macs in general (made the move from PCs) so I'm giving myself, with the help of manuals and the internet a crash course in Final Cut Studio.
I've managed to setup simple keyframed movements etc. in Motion that play back in RT in Motion. But when I try to play back the Motion file/project in Final Cut it drops frames immediately. I have Dynamic and Unlimited RT selected in Final Cut.
Is this normal?... considering that my machine should be very capable of playing back a single animated layer easily. There are possibly some settings I've missed in Motion or Final Cut??
