First time poster, & doing so because I have not found a solution yet.
I am trying to create a custom 3d title so I opened "custom 3D" in motion and enabled x,y,z controls and added my custom font. however when opening up final cut again it gives me the missing "T!" screen when trying to preview it and adding to timeline. All my folders are localized and I even copied it to other places such as FCPX's package contents, etc. in hope of it working with no luck.
I also tried to make another one without changing anything but enabling 3d controls and it also does the same "T!" error.
yes, i have saved from the file menu multiple times. They are located in my Motion templates folder, titles. both of which are '.localized'. I have also tried adding them directly to final cut's titles inside of package contents to no avail.
Hoping it's not a software issue as I'm still on High Sierra but highly avoidant of going to Mojave or higher.
Yes, I did. This is what it looks like. I have also included the path in which the file is located. all folders have been '.localized' as well. even tried taking that extension off at some point.
The weird thing is that while inside FCPX I see the logo in the library window but when i preview it or drag it inside of my project i'm hit with the 'T!' error. Also there is no missing files to link. I'm feeling stuck
It does show up in Final Cut (look at the attachments on my original posting) . However, when I try to use the title/drag it in or even preview it , it gives the error 'T!'. Idk what else I need to do.
The only workaround I can think of to enable you to use your title in your FCPX project would be to fully create the title in Motion, then export a movie file out of Motion and import that into FCPX. The title will be baked into the movie, so any version of FCPX would play it. Obviously you'd have to create and export every title you want out of Motion to bring into your project. Without compatible versions this is one way to make use of the Motion title.
in case, you're using a 'younger' version of Motion = non-matching plugins in FCPX, MotionMasterMind F. Mahoney offers a free service, which tweaks some internal XMLcode of your plugin:
