Final Cut Pro 6 & 7 plugins require:
If you are using FCP 6/7, you will also need to have the most recent version of Apple Motion installed.
Then find your folders for your specific product. Make sure that the permissions on these folders and the specific product folder are set correctly. To do this, highlight the folder, and press CMD-I to get info. Under “Sharing and Permissions”, make sure that the user has permission to Read and Write. After you have reset your permissions try re running the installer for the effect.
In the Finder go to the following location:
Inside this folder you will find all the Effects, Generators, Transitions, and Titles that are installed on your Computer. For each type of plugin there is a corresponding folder. If you are looking to uninstall an Effect product like CrumplePop ColorKit then go to the Effects folder. If you are looking to uninstall a Transition product like CrumplePop HalfLight go to the Transitions folder. The file path of the CrumplePop Effect you wish to uninstall is exactly like it appears in FCPX Effects Browser. Once you find the folder of the plugin you wish to uninstall delete it, empty your trash, and restart Final Cut Pro X. Once Final Cut Pro reopens, you will no longer find the plugin you deleted inside Final Cut Pro X.
and create a folder called “Templates” (with a capital “T”). Then drop your CrumplePop plugins into this new “Templates” folder you just created. Simple as that!
and another one is here:
If your CrumplePop plugins aren’t showing up in FCP, try moving them to the other Templates folder and restarting FCP. This often does the trick!
Simply find the folder of the plugin you wish to uninstall and delete it. Once you have done that, empty your trashcan and restart Final Cut Pro. Any plugins you deleted will now be uninstalled.

The same applies to footage shot with other DSLRs, like the Panasonic GH1 – just make sure you are using the CrumplePop format that matches the resolution, framerate, and PAR (pixel aspect ratio) of your footage. If you need suggestions for how to handle a particular video format with CrumplePop plugins, you can get in touch via email and we will be happy to help you sort it out.
(Note: If you have tried multiple failed Drop Zone placements you must clear your project render files before trying the workflow in the tutorials. To clear your render files go to the project browser, highlight your project and go to file>clear project render files and select “all files.”)
You HAVE to restart and unplug – that’s the key. You cannot cold unplug.
Put another way, as long as the resolution, framerate, and PAR of the CrumplePop template match that of your source footage, you’re good to go.
(Note: If you try downloading the Fluorine font above, and it just opens in TextEdit, then you need to download the latest version of Stuff Expander. This is a free download and you can get it here.)
(Note also: Some users have reported having problems installing the Justy1 font on MacOS 10.4.11. If you are having this problem, you should throw away your copy of the Justy1 font and download this version of Justy1 instead. This is a repaired version of Justy1 that solves this problem.)
