  • Beach Ball in Motion on almost every click

    Posted by Douglas Kapp on December 21, 2020 at 12:15 am

    Upgraded to Big Sur 11.1 a few days ago and went to use Motion (5.5) for the first time since — beach ball appeared on almost every click

    I dragged Motion to the Trash and reinstalled it – same problem

    Anyone dealing with this as well? Thank you.

    Well, it appears the culprit was a font I had just installed to use on the Motion project — it would never validate properly and I have since removed it
