Apple Motion Export not working

I made some graphics in Apple Motion 3 and am trying to export for Final Cut Pro and DVD Studio Pro. But when i export the video that is exported is just black screen. The length is correct but there is no picture.

I recall that when I used motion 3 that something similar (Black video) happened to me once.
I deleted the following file; user/Library/Preferences" and trash 'com.apple.motion.plist' and empty it from the trash, then restart motion. This worked for me.

Just in case anybody else runs into this problem im sure this is not correct but it worked in a pinch. I dragged the motion file into I Movie HD then exported it to .DV then drooped that into FCP and it worked fine.
