Final Cut Pro X does not support visual effects plug-ins directly. All third-party effects, including FxFactory, are available in Final Cut Pro X through a technology called Motion Templates.
Beginning with version 2.6.3, FxFactory uses a new method to install and manage Motion Templates for Final Cut Pro X.
When upgrading from FxFactory 2.6, 2.6.1 or 2.6.2, you may notice that some of the effects on your timeline are reported missing by Final Cut Pro X:
The warnings appear because Final Cut Pro X keeps track of any effects in your timeline by their install location on disc.
FxFactory 2.6.3 (and later) uses a different install location for its Motion Templates, thus Final Cut Pro X is unable to locate them.
|The best solution to this problem is to remove all missing effects from your clips, apply and configure them again.|
Although it may take time to rebuild your effects, it is the best approach to making your projects “future-proof”, so that a new version of our products will not cause any more compatibility problems.
The new installation method introduced by FxFactory 2.6.3 also makes it more reliable to transfer projects from one system to another, and between different users on the same system.
For certain projects, the task of rebuilding all the effects can prove too time-consuming. One solution is to install the Motion Templates that shipped with FxFactory 2.6.2, so that Final Cut Pro X will again be able to find and render the missing effects.
The fact that you have just restored the Motion Templates that were distributed with FxFactory 2.6.2 will solve any “missing effect” errors that were previously reported by Final Cut Pro.
|Please note that installing legacy versions of our Motion Templates alongside newer ones will result in duplicate effects being displayed in the Final Cut Pro X effect browser. It is recommended that you remove the old versions as soon as your project is complete.|
