The Final Cut Pro Command Sets folder is missing

A missing Command Sets folder means the Loupedeck Command Sets Shortcut file did not install properly during installation. This means Final Cut Pro cannot access the folder and some actions may not function as intended.

If your Final Cut Pro command set folder is missing here are a few steps to fix the problem:

  1. Creating the missing folder manually to the following location: /Users/”username”/Library/Application Support/Final Cut Pro/Command Sets
  2. Download the command set file from this link and copy the downloaded file into the newly created folder.
  3. Select Loupedeck in Final Cut Pro -> Command Sets

Note: Please restart the Loupedeck software when you made changes with Command Sets in the Mac folder structure.
