How do I install FCPX effects for all user accounts on a system?
By default, FCPX effects are installed in the following location:
~/Movies/Motion Templates.localized/<TYPE>.localized/Digital Heaven
To make these files accessible by all users on the system they will need to be moved to:
/Library/Application Support/Final Cut Pro/Templates.localized/<TYPE>.localized/Digital Heaven
For example, you would copy
~/Movies/Motion Templates.localized/Transitions.localized/Digital Heaven/DH_Flare
/Library/Application Support/Final Cut Pro/Templates.localized/Transitions.localized/Digital Heaven/DH_Flare
NOTE: Mac OS X 10.7 Lion does not give admin users permission to /Library so you will need to set your permission to "Read & Write" before the files can be moved to this location. Then change permission back to "Read only"
