DrMark Mullaney: Larry, I shared my fcp 7 project to DVD successfully. However, now I would like to share it to another source. But when I click share, fcp will not give me the box of share options, instead, it continues to go to the compressor without giving me any other options. Can you help? By the way, you are the best I've heard on fcp topics.

David Rashed: Thank you So Much, Looked everywhere to figure out what was going on. This Worked Perfect.......

Ricardo D'Aguiar: Perfect as always. Thank you so much, you are such a big help.

AJ King: Attention all users of newer OSX: The Library folder is now hidden in your user directory. The only library folder you will be able to see is the Macintosh HD>Library folder which is the incorrect one. To reveal the Library folder in your user home directory, go to Terminal and simply type in "chflags nohidden ~/Library/" with no quotations. The library folder will now be visible and you can now access the correct preferences folder.

DeadSeaProductions: Hello there. There's got to be a way to increase the amount of ram allocated to Final Cut Pro to more than 4GB. Programs in the 80's and 90's gave the user the option to choose how much memory to allocate to some programs. Why would they take that away from us. Please help. Thank you.

cynematica: Thanks!

Vivavideoproductions: Hello I could not find com.apple.finalcutpro.plist in my preferences

Ian Phillips: Hi Larry, you mention you don't use favorite effects as they are lost when trashing preferences. I'm a big fan of favorite effects and bin combinations of favorite effects. To avoid the problem of them being lost when trashing prefs, I keep a backed up FCP project that contains nothing but my favorite effects. Just create new project drag the favorites bin from the Effect window into the Browser window then save project. Trash prefs then reopen the saved project, drag the contents or the favorites bin from browser window into the favorites bin in the effects window. Favorites restored in seconds!

Joey Sinko: Hey Larry? How do I trash preferences in Mountain Lion? Everything has changed I can't seem to figure out how to do it. Please Help Larry. Thank You. Maybe you already have a video online???

tofaloscom: Hey Larry, I've always said that knowledge should be shared, as the basis of human wealth. you are a great example of this sentence.
We love your tutorials.
Greetings from Chile.

Dominic Frasca: Thanks Larry, love your stuff!

Larry Jordan: Be sure to check out my website for info on how to trash preferences. To find the preference files go to the Finder, press and hold the Option key, and choose Library from the Go menu while holding the Option key. From there go to the preference folder and you'll find that trashing preferences is the same as always. Take care!

Michael R. Santana: hello, i am having serious problems capturing tape on fcp 7. I've been capturing for years and years, and just last week it has been unable to initialize….. all of my setting are correct. i tried to trash the preferences but i cannot find the library to preferences for my life. can someone help?? much appreciated.

Choras Den: ID, sounds like your running lion/ML, the library folder is hidden. go to Finder> go> go to folder. type in ~/library/ and youre in!

Larry Jordan: Be SURE you are looking at the Library folder in your HOME Directory, not at the root level of your hard disk. If you can't find the files, you are looking in the wrong place. Also, check out the "FCP X: Improving Performance" article in my site's Training Library.

Defying Reality: for some reason I dont have those preference files?
