How can I move Final Cut Pro folders?

Hey guys!
I'm trying to figure out how to move the "Final Cut Backups", "Final Cut Pro", and "Motion Templates" folders out of my Movies folder. I keep a bunch of my own movies in that folder, and having those 3 in there becomes an inconvenience.
I've tried to move all my Final Cut Pro media over to an external and when I load videos I want to edit from there, Final Cut Pro still makes folders in my Movies folder instead of my external.
I want Final Cut Pro to set all destinations to my external. Making my external the main place it stores and saves all files/folders.
Even if there isn't any "Change destination" option within Final Cut Pro, could this be done through Terminal in any way?
I am currently using Final Cut Pro X (10.1.2)
Thank you so much!

You can move them in the Finder. I wouldn't move Motion Templates, however.
Where FCP stores the other files can be set in the Inspector.

    As Kappy said, download it from the App Store - this will give you a brand new copy. However unlikely, it's just possible you might be copying a corrupt version from the original computer.
    In the App Store, make certain you use the same Apple ID that the App was purchased with.

  • How can I make Final cut pro 7 and Yosemite work?

    Hi dear Apple.
    I have this huge problem with Final cut pro 7 and Yosemite.
    I have tried to install it on a Mac book pro that has Yosemite but it doesn't work.
    I have an I mac with finalcut pro 7 working on Lion but I need to upgrade it to Yosemite to be able to use CC Adobe.
    I have a feature film worth 6,7 million SEK with Final cut pro 7 and I can't translate it to XML files to premiere cause it is in its last editing process. I get an error everytime I try. Also the last version of Fcp (X) ***** for a professional editor. So.. My only option is to finish this film in Fcp7.
    How can I use Yosemite and still be able to keep Fcp7?
    Please help me or do something about this issue soon. I bought fcp7 for 11000 SEK at the time that was quite expensive. 

    Hi Meg the dog! Thanx for answering!
    I know it was left to die 4 years ago. I just think its ****** up.. I work with documentaries and it takes quite a while to finish. I have done one for 6 years now. If I had known that Fcp7 was left to die I would never had started to edit 6 years ago...
    I did try this recommended on the forum by another user:
    Go to the app location in finder, CTRL click on the app and choose [Show Package Contents]. A folder [Contents] appears, click on it and choose [MacOS]. You'll see a Unix executable. Double click, you'll start Terminal. At the same time fcp will launch. After fcp is launched, close terminal and confirm when asked. Now fcp is up and running. Close fcp and the next time, just open fcp the normal way. DONE!
    But it doesn't work for me. I can't launch fcp7.
    I have Fcp7 Installed on my I mac and I wonder if that will effect fcp7 if I upgrade to Yosemte?
    I tryed to export XML to work on premiere and this is what happends:
    Any recommendations? I am going crazy here..

  • How can i get my Imac, running OSX 10.6.8 with a 2Ghz Intel Core 2 Duo, how can i get Final Cut Pro 4 and DVD studio pro 2 to run on it?

    I just bought an IMAC running OSX 10.6.8 (not sure what flavor that is). The processor is 2Ghz Intel Core 2 Duo (Late 2006). When i run Final Cut Pro 4 on it I get the following error.
                        "Configuration error
                           This software requires certain hardware or software which is missing
                                    * AGP graphics Card"
    If Final Cut Pro 4 doesn't run on my system, what version of Final Cut can I run on this as I am a filmmaker and really am comfortable with Final Cut Pro.
    On the same note I also have DVD studio Pro 2 and that just quits without any message.
    Hope any of you can be some help.
    Thank you,
    Doug

    This is my first mac in a long time so i'm not sure about what this mac is as i didn't buy this from apple (ala Amazon). I'm a tad confused about the Intel/PowerPC thing. I do know the software version for sure, but the Intel/PowerPC is very confusing. I just need to find someone who would know about this question. It doesn't say G5 on this computer. Thats my biggest confusion. Help Me...

  • How can I buy Final Cut Pro 7?

    I heard that I can call Apple in order to purchase Final Cut Pro 7.
    Is that true?
    All I have to do is call?

    You can try, but I believe that ended a while ago, and was only being done while they had existing stock.
    You can always check Amazon.

  • TS2521 How can I get Final Cut Pro 7?

    I would like to get Final Cut Pro 7. Is this possible? If so, does the Studio version have motion, etc.?

    Motion and Compressor are separate. 
    And know, that FCP-X is unlike FCP 7 in just about every way possible.  The way it works is vastly different. And you cannot open FCP 7 or 6 projects in it without buying a 3rd party converter.
    Now, I hear many people like it...I just wanted you to know that it is VERY different from FCP 7

  • How do I move Final cut pro x to my laptop

    I just downloaded the FCP X app to my main computer. Can I just copy the application file to my laptop or what is the best way to move it?  Thanks.

    I figured out that when you download it from the app store it creates a new folder for your older FCP and related programs and puts them in a folder called Final Cut Studio. It then moves the FCP X app over.  If it made that change while downloading the app, I have to wonder if it made any other changes that I didn't see? So to be safe, maybe I'll just download the app again and let it do whatever it does with FCP 7, since I can't afford to have that program go bad on me. I'm guessing both of you are correct, but just to be safe I'll go the slow tedious route:-)

  • How can I transfer Final Cut Pro 7 projects into Adobe Premiere?

    I produced a whole whack of videos in FCP7. Then I got a new Apple Quad Core Intel Mac about a year ago... To find that FCP7 was no longer even usable. I still have FCP 7 on my Intel Core 2 Duo Apple Powerbook. I've read that I can export FCP7 XML files and import them into Premiere, but when I do this Premiere just crashes. This is a major pain in the AS%. Can anybody help me here?? What is the most elegant simple solution that will allow me to get back to work, on my new computer, using the FCP 7 material? Thanks

    You need the Final Cut Studio forum.
    This is just for FCP X.
