Previewing Motion 2 on an NTSC Monitor

After making the necessary hardware connections, which instructions can be found in the article "Previewing Full Screen in a Dual Monitor Configuration in FCP," you can set up the Motion preferences to preview out to an external monitor.

1 Go to Motion > Preferences.

2 Click on the output tab.

3 In the Video output pop up menu, choose FireWire-Apple Firewire

4 Choose update during playback to have your external monitor and Canvas views updated live. Activating the "update dynamically on parameter change" option will mirror what's in the Canvas dynamically. Think of it this way, when you only have the update during playback selection checked, if you move the playhead in the Motion timeline to a new position by dragging it, the external monitor will not reflect that move until you start to play the timeline. Keep in mind that the playback frame rate will have to compensate for these options being checked.
