Hi there, I have just recently got Motion 5 and have wanted to use it to add some tracking points to some of my footage to add some effects.  However my problem is that even importing footage into motion of a very simple 10 second camera pan shot, I can't even play it back with out it stopping a bunch and skipping frames and essentially sputtering to try and play the clip.  However the exact same clip I can pull into FCPX and edit it no problems completely smooth with no issue, even after color correction and added audio ect.  I can't figure out why it does this but Motion does this to me a lot.  Any ideas?  It's very frustrating, but if I could fix this problem I could continue experimenting with visual effects to see what motion can do for me.  Any ideas?  Thanks!
