How Can I add other LUT's to the Drop Down Menu?

.

To load an external LUT, the location of the LUT file itself isn’t important. So long as the user knows where the LUT is located (i.e. the desktop), it can be loaded from anywhere. To make things easier for the user, it’s possible to populate the dropdown list by adding LUT files to the directory: /Library/Plug-Ins/FxPlug/FCPXLutLoader.fxplug/Contents/Resources/LUTS Just make sure that you’re using the correct “Library” folder. There are a number of other “Library” folders in varies places that the user could mistake for the correct one. The first / means that you’re at the root level on the hard drive. To get there, open up any finder window and press Cmd+Shift+g. This will bring up the go to folder command. The simply type “/“ without the quotes and press enter. The user may need administrative privileges to get to the folder and change it’s contents. If the LUT files don’t show up in the dropdown list after adding them to the directory, try restarting Final Cut.
