A very simple question.
I have no problem in installing effects from the forum but cannot find where the transitions live in the directory structure. Can someone please tell me?

I think it's in user/Movies/Motion Templates/Transitions.

All the best,

Tom

That is where I thought it was and that is where the effects folder is but there is no transitions folder there and that is what is confusing me/

Hi Paul,

Do you have Motion 5 installed?

Motion 5 creates the necessary folder structure where you can install custom presets.

Though you said the effects folder was there, so maybe the transitions folder may have been accidentally removed.

Cheers,

BG

If you don't have motion 5 or the transitions folder is no longer there you can create a folder called "transitions" yourself.

However for fcpx to recognize it you need to add the .localized extension to the folder name.

If that doesn't make sense, have a read of this pdf I typed up outlining the procedure.

Hope that helps.

Cheers,

Thank you. I will do that.
Yes Motion 5 is installed and there are many transitions available in fcpx but I cannot find where they come from.

[Paul Burgess] "there are many transitions available in fcpx but I cannot find where they come from."

The default transitions / effects within FcpX are inside the actual application itself.

Custom transitions or any of the user made presets that you download (Effects, generators, titles, transitions etc.)will be the only ones that you will see in the user/Movies/Motion Templates/ directory structure.

Cheers

Brendan
