Hello experts, I have been facing a strange issue on FCPX, I have been running 10.5.1 on an IMAC (3.3 Ghz Quad-Core Intel icore i5 processor with 24GB RAM).The sidebar where you see the titles and generators does not show up the titles or generators installed, when I click on these tabs, nothing happens. It does not show the titles sidebar at all. I have attached some pictures for reference. Usually the titles tab when clicked should show a drop down of the titles it has..and the generators it has. here the sidebar does not even open titles side bar.I went to motion templates folder , all the titles and generators are there in that folder.I have attached the screenshot for you to check, This has been happening quite some times on my IMac , I Have tried reinstalling fcpx several times.


I have installed the fcpx trial version to see if the other version which I has the issue, but its the same. I have tried deleting the preferences also , but no use.

Looking forward for your advise to solve this issue...Thanks in advance.

Regards

You can set to the default workspace from Window>Workspaces or Cmd-0 zero. If you reset the preferences it resets to the default workspace.

Move the application to the trash and reinstall it from the App Store. There is something wrong with the image you posted. Both the library sidebar and the title sidebar should not be active, showing blue, at the same time. Remove any third party content from the Moon Templates folder and reset the preferences again before you reinstall the application.

That was a great observation Tom about the library sidebar and the title sidebar being active.


I do have fx factory plugins on the IMAC and macbook pro, I have no issues on Macbook pro with the same plugins.

Can I copy the motion templates folder from my macbook pro and replace the motion templates on the effected IMAC system. Does that help?

You can do that. I’d be surprised if it would help your problem.

If I only have FCPX default titles n generators, there may not be any issue, After I install some new titles and generators also it works fine and then in a day or two or in few days I face the same issue.

I have reinstalled FCPX (from the app store) thrice in one month and still I am facing the same issue. I use FX factory , Pixel film studios plugins apart from other 3rd party titles and generators also and all these work fine on my Macbook pro.

Any other suggestions or ways to fix this would be of great help, It's really frustrating issue and I am surprised I have not seen anyone talking about it.

Looking forward for help.

Did I ask you if you have Chrome installed?Uninstall it and reload FCP. Aldo do you have any system cleaning application or antivirus software? They can damage the system for pro apps.

Depends on which App Cleaner. This one
freemacsoft.net/appcleaner/

is fine. Use it to uninstall CleanMyMac. You may have to do a system wipe and reinstall of the OS, migrating only the users and reinstalling your software.

I'd get rid of Clean My Mac and reinstall everything from scratch. That app is bad news.

I've you do a clean wipe of the drive you don't have to worry about uninstall CleanMyMac, just never install it again.

Yes, because the damage it could do has been done, and uninstalling it won't fix that damage.
