More tips to run FCP7 with FCPX installed

In the wake of yesterday's entry, our students and instructors pointed out some more bugs that crop up when you run Final Cut 7 with Final Cut Pro X and Motion 5 installed.  Here are a few quick workarounds for some of those bugs:

  • Send To Motion–As soon as Motion 5 is installed, FCP7's Send To Motion feature breaks, and with it the easy roundtripping that makes the FCP/Motion/FCP workflow so appealing.  FCP7 "Sends To" Motion 5, but it can't interpret Motion 5 project files.  To fix this problem (and make FCP7 "Send To" Motion 4), just move Motion 5 to any location outside of your Applications folder–for example, your Desktop.  You can always move Motion 5 back into your Applications folder after you're done working from FCP7.
  • Boris/Boris Title 3D–When you install FCPX, the App Store automatically moves your old Final Cut Studio software into a folder called Final Cut Studio.  This breaks some third-party plugins like Boris Title 3D.  To fix the problem, you can move Final Cut Pro (7) out of the Final Cut Studio folder into the main Applications folder.
  • 3-Way Color Corrector–We've heard a few reports that FCPX breaks some features of FCP7's 3-Way Color Corrector, especially the "Limit Effect" eyedropper.  We don't have a solution just yet, but we're working on it!
