Download the free app "Preference Manager" from Digital Rebellion dot com and use it to trash your Motion 5 prefs.

Didn't work, but thanks for the idea - I was really hoping that would do it!

Have you recently changed any system settings for audio, like sound input/output devices, midi settings?

The only thing I did having to do with sound input/midi settings was when I attached a microphone to my computer to record a voiceover in Garageband. I then used that voiceover file (after converting/sharing to iTunes) in this Motion project. However, I did that before I encountered this problem. I was able to export an audio file out of Motion that included that voiceover file, so I know everything was still fine after changing any settings for the microphone. I was very, very lucky because I was able to utilize that last audio export to finish my project. I made a bunch of changes to the images/clips (about 4 days worth), but thankfully I hadn't made any changes to the audio. Of course, there would have been some tweaks I would have liked to have been able to make to the audio, but it was fine as is. My issue going forward is that I want to do more of these projects for clients, but I would hate to run into this problem again. It just boggles my mind why it was working perfectly fine, and then it just stopped. And I learned my lesson a few years ago not to make any system or program updates while I'm working on a project. So, I hadn't made any updates to Motion or OS X. Now that the project is done, I did update my operating system (that was before I tried trashing the Motion pref file).
