How to fix Final Cut Pro & iMovie in OS X Yosemite
Yesterday, Apple released the first OS X Yosemite Developer Preview following its WWDC 2014 keynote, allowing beta testers early access to its next big desktop operating system update. While many appreciate the new, overhauled appearance of the OS, many forgot that this was beta software they were installing, and that all bets were off as far as bugs and other issues went. One of the big ones if you edit videos is that both Final Cut Pro X and iMovie won't launch by default in the initial Yosemite Developer Preview. We were able to find a way around this:
- Head to your Applications folder in Finder
- Right-click the Final Cut Pro or iMovie app icon
- Select "Show Package Contents"
- Go into the Contents folder
- Go into the MacOS folder
- Double-click on the app icon (either Final Cur Pro or iMovie)
This will launch the Terminal app first, and then should launch the video editor after a few Terminal commands go through. It's not a perfect solution, but it's one that we've found will work for now, at least until Yosemite Developer Preview 2 is released in what we guess will be a couple of weeks.
