When launching FInal Cut for the first time it scanned all of my audio units and one of them caused FC to crash. I removed the offending AU and now that I got an update for that particular AU, I would like Final Cut to rescan my AU plugins, but I can't find that option anywhere. When I want Logic Pro to rescan AU plugins I just delete the cache file located in User > Library > Caches, but it doesn't seem to work for Final Cut. How do I get Final Cut to rescan plugins? Also, is there a way to disable AU plugins in Final Cut without the use of a third party application?

    Quit the application and relaunch. You cannot disable plugins from within FCP. It either has to be done manually or with third party utilities.

    There is no FCP cache for this. The plugins are only scanned at launch. Why do you say they're not being scanned? If they're not showing up in the FCP filters it's probably because they're not compatible.

    You should report that as a bug. The plugins are scanned every time the application launches. You can see it happening in the splash screen.
