Motion Template Backdater

Use this tool to backdate your Motion Templates to be compatible with the version of FCPX you are running. You should research the types of features in your template to make sure your version of Final Cut will be “aware” of those features. Expect that if the template you’re backdating requires certain dependencies, it may not work. That won’t break FCPX, but you should remove templates that don’t work from the Motion Templates hierarchy and keep your downloaded file as a backup until you can upgrade. 

If you have not done so before, please read the Instructions & Notes below. It will toggle to display when you click the button.

Mixing OSCs with Text in FCPX — An Update

OSCs. OnScreen Controls.

Before FCPX 10.0.6 (10/23/2012), using OSCs in a Title with Text was not a problem. As long as there was access to the control point, it could be “grabbed”. After 10.0.6 came out, this changed. Text objects took complete precedence and any OSC within the “bounds” of the text could not be accessed without moving the text out of the way or by changing its position parameter in the Title’s inspector.
