Motion - No File Browser Window

Greetings!

I have finally made the switch to FCS 2 after years on a trusty M100 - so I am pushing my way up the learning curve.

I have run into an issue with Motion where the File Browser Window will not open. I have been back and forth between Motion and FCP numerous times today with no problems. I recently went back and opened Motion and the File Browser Window is not opening. I am running two monitors, and have tried switching back and forth with the default layouts and with the one I saved which spread the windows out over two monitors. I have also gone through the usual Window menu and choices to "show" file browser, but it does not come up.

I am on a 2 x 3GHz machine running 10.5.2 and Motion is version 3.02. Also did all my software upgrades and fixed permissions.

Any thoughts?

Thanks!

Dave

David,

Go to Window>File Browser...or Cmd-1.

Cheers

Hi WeeHan,

Thanks for your reply. Yes, I have tried both of these suggestions, as well as the File Browser button in the top portion of the viewer window - but the File Browser still does not open. I just restarted my machine after your reply, and still no success.

Just to recap, I have tried going back to the default program layouts, as well as the one I created, updated all software, restarted numerous times, and repaired the permissions.

Weird!

David,

It looks like a reinstall might be in order.
Sounds like something went south...

Good luck,

(another) David

Really weird David! Looks like a reinstall is unavoidable.

Cheers

forgive my ignorance - but this would be a reinstall of just Motion, yes?

Also, do I need to un-install before I reinstall?

Thanks!
