    Having migrated from my iMac 27″ 2013 to a new Mac Studio, many plug-ins are not compatible with the M1 chip and these all show up when I launch FCPX. I have a window on my FCPX interface that lists all the plug-ins and they are still listed under Text, Generators and Effects. How do I remove these so they don’t show up in FCPX?

    Thanks.

    FCP Plugins are normally stored in these folders:

    • Macintosh HD/Users/<i style=”font-family: inherit; font-size: inherit;”>your-user-name/Movies/Motion Templates/Effects/
    • Macintosh HD/Users/<i style=”font-family: inherit; font-size: inherit;”>your-user-name/Movies/Motion Templates/Generators/
    • Macintosh HD/Users/<i style=”font-family: inherit; font-size: inherit;”>your-user-name/Movies/Motion Templates/Titles/
    • Macintosh HD/Users/<i style=”font-family: inherit; font-size: inherit;”>your-user-name/Movies/Motion Templates/Transitions/

    Within these folders are subfolders for each plug-in or plug-in package. If plug-ins are part of a package, there will be a subfolder for the package, known as a “category.” In each category subfolder you will find a subfolder for each individual plug-in in that package.

    You can safely delete plug-in and category folders to remove their contents from FCP.

    Here is the list of Plug-ins I get when I launch FCPX 10.6 that either need to be updated or deleted (because they are incompatible with FCPX 10.6 of Mac Studio M1 Max). I located the area where the plug-ins are located from your links provided. But I don’t see any of these. And what is Universe? This is getting very confusing.

    Help and Thanks.
