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.

    As I'm trying to rectify something in FCPX I'll stick around for a while!

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

  • Ron Level 2 Level 2 (385 points)

    Thanks for reply, Tom.

     

    It came with an installer which of course I used, Tom, but the company I dealt with (Viideo Blocks) had a cunning way of charging as soon as I clicked on a trial version and I found my bank had been charged £59.00 so I told them I would get the  bank to deal with them if the charge wasn't removed.   I was then informed that I would be refunded.   In my reply I asked for a means of removing the unwanted stuff from my FCPX application but I haven''t  heard any more from the firm and I don't note an uninstaller anywhere.

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

     

    I'm not trying to get rid of any original plugin that came with the FCPX programme; it's the ones I got from the Videok Blocks firm that are messing with me.   I had hopled to download that Ken Burns plug-in which allows for motion on still pics within FCPX but instead got a load of ongoing, unwanted ones at an exhorbitant monthly payment.

    Nobody know enough to help me with this one . . . ?   I'm absolutely fed up with the large number of transitions showing in my FCPX  programme that are simply no good to me and occupying a good deal of space amongst those that I can use.

    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

    Did what you suggested, Bill.   Having a further difficulty with that and trashed the whole programme then now in the middle of downloading again.   As you know, once paid for, FCPX can be downloaded and I'm hoping it will  appear without that unwanted stuff.   I noted that it's not just Factory fx items but a considerable amount of others as well.

     

    All I can say is, don't download the stuff from Video Blocks without knowing that it will coast a sizable amount of cash on a monthly basis to run!   I'll comment back shortly.

    • 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.

  • Ron Level 2 Level 2 (385 points)

    Studying my files in FCPX I have:

     

    FxFactory

    Luca Visual fx

    Sugar fx

    Demo X1 EFFECTS

    Nattress

    idustrial revolution P

    idustrial revolution V

     

    All of these are trial versons (with the usual water marks) which have to be paid for if required.   I don't want anything to do with them at this time and they occupy a major part of the effects/transitions list in FCPX interface.

     

    I found that there is no provision to delete any separate ones, so in FxFactory at the moment I'm in the middle of deleting the complete FxFactory programme which is taking quite some time.

     

    I'll come back when that prolonged trashing is finished and comment on the result.   Thanks for being involved.

    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

  • Ron Level 2 Level 2 (385 points)

    Thank  you Karsten.   I don't want any of them - they're more than a nuisance at the moment so I'll let the complete trashing take place.   Visual help works wonders . . . !   Thanks again.   I'll be back.

    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!
