In the good old days, you could move apps (we old-timers called them programs) all over the place on a Mac system with no ill effects. My how we would laugh at those PC guys with their corrupted registries and such.
The tables have turned. Moving apps around can upset your mac to no end. This is even worse with App Store installed pieces.
Probably best to reinstall both apps into the proper place. I know that on install of X, it likes to do some stuff to a current install of FCPS (it renames the folder so they can peacefully coexist on the same system.) Best to just let it do it's thing.

Hi. I had the same exact problem and I have Motion Installed and OPEN when it says You must have Motion 5 installed to use this feature. You can purchase Motion 5 from the Mac App Store. Please, I've reinstalled the software too. What could be the issue?!?!

Ever get this figured out?
My son is having the same problem. Right click to 'Open a Copy in Motion' and then get the "You must have Motion 5 installed to use this feature. You can purchase Motion 5 from the Mac App Store."
The Mac App store show Motion is installed.

I have the same problem. I've tried all the things said in the post, but it doen't work
Has anyone found out how to solve the problem?
I even tried to put them in the same folder called "Final Cut Pro X" but it doesn't help..

I have Final Cut Pro X and Motion 5 in a folder named 'Final Cut Pro X' in the Applications folder
They are named 'Final Cut Pro' and 'Motion' without the version numbers.
They run well. I can right-click in Final Cut Pro X and open most of the effects in Motion 5.
I also have Final Cut Pro 7 and Motion 4 in the Applications folder, they aren't in a sub-folder, and have their version numbers in their titles: 'Final Cut Pro 7' and 'Motion 4'
They seem to be working fine as well.

You may have got them working but the name of that folder is completely wrong.
If your normal FCS applications are in the Application Folder and you want to keep them there, you should make a folder called exactly
Final Cut Pro X
Any deviation in lettering or spacing is incorrect.
Your FCP X and Compressor 4 and Motion 5, with their original names unchanged (Final Cut Pro, Compressor and Motion) must be put in it.
The exact details are in the final section of this KBA entitled "Restore FCS apps to their original location".
If the folder and the apps have not got the correct names you will probably be unable to use further updates.

I tried all the methods above to open Motion 5 through Final Cut Pro X but it is still giving me this message:
"You must have Motion 5 installed to use this feature. You can purchase Motion 5 from the Mac App Store."
I can open Motion 5 on its own, but not through FCP X! =[
Please HELP!! =]
