Adding Tif over LiveType causing problems
I’m editing a show for a local hospital. It’s your typical host/guest talk show. I’ve created the lower third titles by using an animates template made in After Effects (animation codec), importing it into LiveType as a background movie and then adding the name titles over the background. The entire composite is then saved from LiveType and imported into FCP. Everything looks good and works just fine.
Now, the client wants to add a crystal corner “bug” over the entire show. No problem, right? Wrong.
When I add the bug over the show (on the top track over everything else) I loose all of my Livetype titles. Gone! I get the “Media missing in LiveType file” error message. This happens to any LiveType graphic as soon as I add the bug graphic. “Undo” the bug and all is fine again. I’ve tried the bug as a .tif and a .pct with the same results. (haven’t tried it as a .psd yet however) Just a little strange.
Anybody got any ideas about this one?
