As a result of my incursion into a "Free Ken Burns Download" on the Net I'm now lumbered with a fair number of plug-ins in my FCPX that I can't use and don't want.   How can I get rid of them, please, anyone?   And while I'm mentioning the subject, can anyone explain to me how I can get that Ken Burns plug-in without suffering a similar fate as that I've just described?   T.I.A.

MacPro - 2 x 250 HD 500gb Ext. Lacie- 6gb RAM - FCS2 - FCP6.05 - DVD SP, Mac OS X (10.5.8)

    What Ken Burns plugin? It's built into the app. Does your download have an installer? Does it come with an uninstaller?

    If it didn't come with an uninstaller, can't you just drag it to the trash? I would guess it is located in Applications. If not, do a Spotlight search.

     

    Good luck.

    Go to your user folder, then movies folder, then motion templates folder, then Titles folder, then find the folder for this company and delete. If they are following the conventional way of storing their goods, then you should be set. Delete their files from there and you should be good.

     

    Sincerely,

    Bill

    • goto your apps folder

    • launch the FxFactory app

    • uncheck the boxes of the plugins you don't want/need/use

     

    done.

     

    ... in case you're using FxFactory - you haven't told us yet.

    A reinstall of FCPX will - as usual - don't solve that problem.

    sure there is ...

    when you hover any of the items listed, you get a few more buttons, incl. a checkbox.

     

    in your case, an uncheckbox.

     

    no need do de-install anything ...

    ahh, I already told you

    … so I'll let the complete trashing take place.   Visual help works wonders . . . !

    use the deactivate feature in FxFactory (under Actions), otherwise it will rise its ugly head on next launch.

     

    yepp, a good red-arrow-pic is worth a thousand pidgin words!
