How to Fix Bad Final Cut Pro X Plug-ins

[ This article was written by Luke at Bel Photo. ]

After updating to the latest version 10.5 I opened and updated the library as suggested only to discover that many titles and effects were unavailable.

Very frustrating! I tried restarting, deleting preferences and it didn’t work! But when you right click and reveal them on finder they are still there!

After doing some research, I found the solution.

The Apple Discussion Forum recommended to delete (trash) the affected plugins and to re-download and re-install them.

Before I did that, I updated the mInstaller of MotionVFX, the FxFactory software, and the Pixel Film Studios installer.

The whole process took a few hours, but, now I’m back into full operation.
