When All Else Fails

When All Else Fails

There are times when simply trashing the Final Cut Pro Preference file clears up problems. This file is located in your System folder in the Preferences folder. Keep in mind, though, that all favorites and custom presets have to be rebuilt if you trash this file. In OS X, it's located in Users>your user name>Library>Preferences>Final Cut Pro User Data>Final Cut Pro 4.0 Preferences. Just trash the file or put it in another folder temporarily. The next time you launch the application, Final Cut Pro builds a new one that has the FCP default settings.

If this fails, and you are positive you need to reinstall Final Cut Pro, an article in the Knowledge Base on Apple's website guides you through the uninstall process. You should uninstall Final Cut Pro before a “ground up” reinstall. You'll find this article at http://docs.info.apple.com/article.html?artnum=93150. In fact, many Final Cut Pro articles are posted. You should check them first when troubleshooting any problem. Go to http://docs.info.apple.com and search for “Final Cut Pro 4.” You'll be enlightened by reading them.
