Thanks I feel better.

After the upgrade, a huge slew of audio plugins that I normally use in Pro Tools and I guess were OK with the earlier iteration of FCP X, came to haunt me.

FCP X takes a LOT longer to start up and before it gets there a rather long list of plugins is presented that (I guess) are not opposed to work with the new version of FCP X.

Also, the only way I could get the system and FCP X to open the new version of FCP X, was to let it copy old FCP X files and create new ones for the new version. So I now have pretty much filled up my hard drives. Can I get rid of the old ones? There seem to have been some weird errors in creating the new ones. A yellow, triangular caution is beside some of the new events.

Any help you can offer in the post upgrade mess would be appreciated. I ran Clean My Mac and Disk Warrior to tidy things up a bit. They did find a few things, but the OS X upgrade seems pretty successful apart from FCP X wigging out. We even tried a reinstall of FCP X and even then, not so much fun because of the audio plugins it doesn't like. Is there a folder somewhere that they might have been put in that I can trash that won't make them inaccessible to Pro Tools?
