For safety's sake, I installed Motion 5, then Final Cut Pro X on a spare external drive with a a newly installed copy of Snow Leopard (10.6.7). As that worked well, I drag copied Motion 5 and Final Cut over to my main drive, which has FCS3 installed.


After a few days of running Final Cut and Motion, creating effects, titles, generators and transitions in Motion and using them in Final Cut, I'd like to edit a copy of an Apple installed effect. Now Final Cut puts up this error message:


You must have Motion 5 installed to use this feature. You can purchase Motion 5 from the Mac App Store.


When I run the Mac App Store application, it detects that Motion 5 is installed on my computer. I assume it checks online to see which apps I've downloaded with my Apple ID and whether they appear to be in the Applications folder.


Anyone know how to point out the location of Motion 5 to an installed copy of Final Cut Pro X?
