How do I reset my permissions?

.

First, open your Terminal. To do this easily, press Command Space to bring up your Spotlight Search and type Terminal. Launch the Terminal window and paste the following command.

tccutil reset AppleEvents

Then press enter.

The tccutil command manages the privacy database, which stores decisions the user has made about whether apps may access personal data. Resetting this will require the user to grant permissions once more when running an installer or allowing a download. The permissions are required in order for the software to be written to the correct directories on your computer.

Why are updates not appearing even though I received an email saying there was a product update?

.

First verify that the PFS App is updated to the latest version. The installer will know there is an update based on if you already have a product installed and there is a newer version available. The installer is looking for the exact name of a plugin so if it can't see the exact name of the file in your motion templates as it appears in the name of the downloaded folder it will just say download in the PFS App. For this reason we do not recommend users rename the motion template folders of the plugin.

For example, let's say you have the FCPX Social Mega Pack installed. In your motion templates, under the Titles and Effects library you would see the plugin listed under Pixel Film Studios - FCPX Social Mega Pack. If the plugin is renamed to just FCPX Social Mega Pack then the PFS App will no longer be able to detect that the Pixel Film Studios - FCPX Social Mega Pac is installed and will instead prompt the user to download rather than update.

The only reasons you would need to download instead of updating is if the plugin is either not installed currently or the name of the plugin has changed and you need to download the newest version.
