    I went a little easy setup creating crazy thinking I could get rid of the ones I don’t want. Well I can’t seem to permanently get rid of the ones I made. I deleted them from HD-Library-App Support-FCP support-Custom settings. Launch FCP and go to easy setup and they’re still their. I know its not a big deal but never the less I would like to clean this up.

    Hi Erik,
    They should be in your Applications folder. You can get rid of all the French, German, Chinese, etc, too.

    You have to trash your prefs after you delete them. They will then disappear.

    Jeremy,
    This is a topic that hasn’t sunk in very well for me. Let’s say I’ve got FCP working just fine and I have used FCP Rescue 6 to save a backup of my prefs. Now, I want to delete a stupid Easy Setup that I created. So I exit FCP and I delete the thing using finder. Then I use FCP Rescue 6 to trash my FCP prefs. This sets FCP to default settings, right? Then, I use FCP Rescue 6 to restore prefs from its backup. At this point, have I reinstated that stupid Easy Setup or will it stay gone? I guess there’s no harm in trying that exact sequence of events, but I’m thinking you probably know the answer. Thanks.

    [Tom Brooks] “Then I use FCP Rescue 6 to trash my FCP prefs. This sets FCP to default settings, right?”

    Correct.

    [Tom Brooks] “At this point, have I reinstated that stupid Easy Setup or will it stay gone?”

    Great question. I honestly don’t know for sure. It seems that the easy setups are somehow tied to preferences, so if you restore the old prefs, you are simply replacing the new fresh ones you just created. and the ‘Stupid Easy Setup’ will in fact be back in place.

    A way around it is to simply modify the ‘Stupid Easy Setup’ and get it to where you want it.

    Does that make sense?

    Yes, that makes sense. Maybe I’ve overlooked something on how to modify a setting without having to duplicate it first. I’ll take a more careful look at it. Thanks.
