Unable to locate Final Cut Pro Preference files
on Nov 9, 2012 at 4:16:50 pm

Hello,

here's a problem I need urgent help with. FCP7 is misbehaving ( keeps crashing on renders and selecting clips at random and so on). I quit and re-launched, then tried repairing permissions, all to no avail.

The next step is to trash the FCP preference files, but here's the problem.
I have located the Library folder, and inside there are 2 files called:
com.apple.RegFinalCutStudio.plist
com.apple.RegFinalCutStudio.plist.lockfile

From what I have read there is also supposed to be a folder called
Final Cut Pro User Data, and there are other files in there that I am supposed to trash. But I don't seem to have that folder and when I search the computer nothing comes up.

Here's my question: Why can I not locate the FCPUser Preferences Folder and why does the plist file I have found have the "REG" in front of it? Shouldn't it just say com.apple.finalcutpro.plist?

What am I supposed to trash?

Here are my specs:
MacPro tower
2 x 2.66 GHz Dual-Core Intel Xeon
4 GB 667 MHz DDR2 FB-DIMM
NVIDIA GeForce 7300 GT 256 MB
OSX 10.7.4
FCP 7.0.3

Any help would be greatly appreciated as I am in the middle of a project and on a time crunch.

Thanks,

Jeremy

Scroll down and look for the folder called "Final Cut Pro User Data"

Same problem did you find the files in the end? If so where are they hiding?
