MediaStorm’s Guide to Restoring Preferences with Final Cut Rescue 5

is a simple utility that deletes Final Cut’s preferences and replaces them with clean new ones. To setup Final Cut Rescue, first quit FCP. If you are using FCP 5, delete the preferences below:









Users/[Your User Name]/Library/Preferences/com.apple.FinalCutPro.plist
Users/[Your User Name]/Library/Preferences/Final Cut Pro User Data/Final Cut Pro 5.0 Prefs
Users/[Your User Name]/Library/Preferences/Final Cut Pro User Data/Final Cut Pro Obj Cache
Users/[Your User Name]/Library/Preferences/Final Cut Pro User Data/Final Cut Pro Prof Cache

Next, restart FCP, make some changes and then save your project to create new preferences. Open Final Cut Resuce and click “Backup.” You’ve now saved a clean set of preferences. The next time FCP is acting oddly, close the application, open Final Cut Rescue, and click “Trash” then “Restore.” FCP should now be good to go.

is freeware.
