Question about keeping project files/event files/libraries when reinstalling Final Cut X.
on Mar 18, 2014 at 2:30:26 am

I currently have Final Cut 10.0.8 and am about to update to 10.1.1, but I am avoiding the app store. I have the install DMG for 10.1.1 and my question is, will all of my project files and events be reset when I uninstall FCP X to install the new version or will the 10.1.1 DMG work as a sort of updater to my current version?

If not, what's the best way to back my effects packs/settings/projects/events?

Thanks a lot!

What does 'I am avoiding the app store' mean? Updating there would make the most sense if you have a legit license.

In any case- reinstalling FCPX doesn't affect your existing projects existence. But of course they will definitely need to be upgraded to the 10.1 format. Here's what to keep in mind about that: http://support.apple.com/kb/HT5958

Your effects will be fine, just make sure they're all updated. Most settings will remain, some may need to be redone, your share settings will remain. Updating Projects and Events is straightforward, but it's really important to understand what is happening as once updated, there's no turning back. I'd recommend reading as much as you can about the process before you begin. I wrote up a little piece here:

Philip Hodgetts has some good info here:

and google will turn up much more, fcpx.tv is a good resource as well... Have fun! :-)
