For the last week or so, it's been impossible to import anything into a Motion 4 project. Whether you use the "import" button or drag and drop, Motion will hang indefinitely. If you layer up all your assets in the FCP timeline and then used "send to Motion", that works, but if you try and import anything while you're in the Motion project, it will just hang.


I trashed the prefs, didn't fix it. I removed and reinstalled Motion, didn't fix it. I removed and reinstalled the entire FCS suite, didn't fix it.


Since reinstalling FCS didn't help, I can only assume that the most recent security update for 10.6.8 broke something, since that was the last thing I changed on my Mac before the import function stopped working. Anybody else have any insight?

Motion 4, Mac OS X (10.6.8)
