When Library Media Becomes Unavailable
As with any other object used in a Motion project, Library media used by a project must
be present and installed on your computer for that media to appear correctly in Motion.
If someone gives you a project file and you don’t have the same filters or fonts used in
the file, a warning appears when you open the project, listing the items that are
Creating and Managing Projects
You can close the project and install the necessary files on your computer, or open the
file. When you open a file with missing media, the following occurs:
• Missing Content: Missing content is treated like any other missing media item. For more
information about reconnecting media, see
Online Versus Offline Media
• Missing Filters: When a filter is missing, a placeholder object appears in the Layers list
and Timeline. When you reinstall the missing filter, the filter object replaces the
placeholder, and the effect is applied properly.
• Missing Fonts: When fonts are missing, the text objects that use those fonts default to
Helvetica as a temporary substitute. Missing international fonts substitute the default
system font for the relevant language.
