Red Screen in FCPX

There are two seperate Red Screen errors you may see in FCPX. One that is a gradient red and one that is a solid red. Below is the solutions for both scenarios.

Step 1 – Gradient Red Screen

The Gradient Red Screen indicates that your FCPX is out of date. In this video we will go over how to update FCPX to address this.

The Solid Red Screen can also indicate an FCPX version issue.  You can check the system requirements for the plugin on each product page in the System Requirements tab.

Step 2 – Solid Red Screen

The Solid Red Screen indicates a file error between FCPX and the plugin. In this video, we go over how to correct this. If the issue persists please view the video below as well.

Step 3 – Renaming Motion Templates

You may be seeing a Solid Red Screen because the motion template folder may not be properly named. In this video, we will walk you through how to rename these folders.</p
