Troubleshooting Final Cut Pro

The two most common fixes for issues with Final Cut Pro, are to throw away the plist file, or to throw away files from the Final Cut Pro User Data folder.  Both the plist file, and the Final Cut User Data folder are located at User>Library>Preferences. The files within the Final Cut Pro User Data folder that you need to delete, are the Prefs and Cache. If you have used the Final Cut Assistant to back up user settings, you could just throw away the entire Final Cut Pro User Data folder.  Now launch Final Cut Pro, and see if it is running properly.


If this does not fix the issues you are experiencing, you may also want to Repair your Disc Permissions. To do this you will need to go to the Disk Utility located at Applications>Utilities>Disk Utility. Once the Disk Utility is open, you will need to select the drive that Final Cut Pro is installed on, and then choose Repair Disk Permissions. This is a maintenance procedure that should be performed periodically. 

In many cases one of these two procedures will resolve any issue that you may experiencing.
