    So I cross-graded one of our machines and now Title 3D won’t work. I saw another post, and Walter said Title 3D was working on his machines. Walter, is it still working on your machines? I’m in a bad place if I can’t get it working….. I tried to reinstall and it still won’t show up. Tried trashing prefs, and cache and still no luck…. Help!

    Same thing happened to me.
    What I did was create a new user account and open FCP
    in that account. Low and behold, there was Title 3D again.
    Have no idea why.
    Of course if you do this you need to change the permissions
    on your project files if you had them in your other user account.
    Overall a bit of a pain to do all this, but like you, I needed it to work
    and no one here or at Apple had any idea how to fix it.

    Winston,

    Boris Title 3D works perfectly here at my place on a MAC G5 running 5.1.2. If you simply installed the crossgrade over your working version of FCP I would suggest that you reinstall both the OS and FCP from scratch. And, whenever upgrading, updating, crossgrading, or doing a full install, always clone your system drive to an external drive first using an app like Carbon Copy Cloner. And, always make certain the clone boots properly before proceeding with your upgrade, update, crossgrade, or full install.

    Thanks guys, I’m going to try the new user first, and then I’ll do the full re-install. Thanks again!!!

    And how do you make sure a clone boots properly?

    You boot from the clone and if it boots its a proper clone. If it doesn’t, clone it again. I’ve only had one bad one in about thirty attempts.
