I was wondering if anyone could help me figure this out. I have a project with all of the original media stored in the FCPX library on an external hard drive. I used Motion 5 to create a generator and a title for this project. Everything was great until I had to sell that computer and upgrade to a newer one. I knew the generator and title needed to not only be in the motion templates folder, but have the same filename and be put in the same folder. So on the new computer, I located the same folders and I copied the files in place. So I believe everything is where it should be and titled appropriately. For some reason when I open FCPX all of those generators and titles are missing with no way to relink them or see the file chain. What's weird is I can see them in the effects library. Does anyone have any ideas? Thanks in advance!
There is a kind of common problem creating "Template Paths" manually.
In Finder a path a) like "~/Movies/Motion Templates/Titles/myTitle" and a path b) like "~/Movies/Motion Templates/Titles/myTitle" obviously look like the same.
If you have a detailed view (for example pressing cmd-I) you will see the difference.
Path a): "~/Movies/Motion Templates/Titles/myTitle"
Path b) "~/Movies/Motion Templates.localized/Titles.localized/myTitle"
Path b) is be the correct one.
Final Cut needs "/Motion Templates.localized/TemplateTypea.localized/" path (i.e. the '.localized' extension).
