Re-Installation of FCS 3
on Jan 20, 2012 at 3:17:54 pm

Hallo Everybody,

I installed recently FCS3 over my existing FCS2.
Unfortunately, ever since, weird things happened: Copy&Paste becomes terrible slow (beach ball), Compressor can't quit and just by force quit, and many other actions causing terrible long waiting times (beach balling). Now, I read, I should un-install the whole FCS and re-install from the ground.
My question: When I do this, are all my third party plugs, such as Red Giant, Nattress and so on, also lost and have to be re-installed or they are still around?


Thanx.
Sascha

Not lost, if you archived trhem. Just a pain to re-install.

Don't forget all the updates to the FCS and quicktime packages. I think I would re-load them in chronological order, as they patch each other's faults in sequence.

What do you mean by that? Don't get it.

Archived you mean, if backed the installations for those plug ins up and have to re-run all the installations?

Thanx a lot.

I'm afraid, yes.

So, is there anything I can check first, before I'd dive into this Abyss? That it might be solved easier, than full re-installation.
By the way: will my contents remain, or all those 40gb will be gone also?

Hi Sascha,
I've been working with FC.7 installed on top of Fc.6 without problem, but taking care of running DiskWarrior and repairing preferences.

Anyway, before reinstalling you should make a proper de-installing. I think Digital Rebellion (http://www.digitalrebellion.com/) has a free application to do so.
The FC's Application Support folder (Library) will be trashed and with him the Plugins folder.
You can try to put it somewhere else inside the "Applications Support" but some plugins may not work.
There are other plugins that install elements out of the FC Plugins folder. I don't know how may be affected.

You mean running Disk Warrior over the start up disk? But that is not possible to optimize the start up disk.
I do run AppleJack very often.
Repairing preferences? You mean the ones inside DiskWarrior or Disk Utility?

Why do I need the Plug In of Digital Rebellion? The FCS Remover from FCP itself is not good?

You need to run it from the CD/DVD (slow) or, as I do it, from other computer or external HD with a system installed (Faster)



[Sascha Engel] "The FCS Remover from FCP itself is not good?"
There is one?
Sorry I had no idea on this.
If there is one, go on.

There is no official Apple uninstaller for Final Cut Studio.

My software:
Pro Maintenance Tools - Tools to keep Final Cut Studio, Final Cut Pro X, Avid Media Composer and Adobe Premiere Pro running smoothly and fix problems when they arise
Pro Media Tools - Edit QuickTime chapters and metdata, detect gamma shifts, edit markers, watch renders and more
More tools...

Walter certainly is, but there is once. It's on the Installation DVD in the Extras Folder. It's called FCS Remover.

Not in my FCS3 and really the only remover I've ever heard about is the one of "Digital Rebellion".

Somehow I doubt it...since it's the copy of a TV station I work for.
But in any case I found the Digital Rebellion version.
I just really hope, that fixes my problem, since it's gonna be a hustle to re-install everything.

There's only one FCS Remover and Apple has never officially endorsed it (although it is often unofficially recommended by its support staff) so it does not ship on any Apple-sanctioned DVD.

My software:
Pro Maintenance Tools - Tools to keep Final Cut Studio, Final Cut Pro X, Avid Media Composer and Adobe Premiere Pro running smoothly and fix problems when they arise
Pro Media Tools - Edit QuickTime chapters and metdata, detect gamma shifts, edit markers, watch renders and more
