Installation for Final Cut Pro

Close Final Cut Pro, if it is open.

Files are in a SIT format. Some browsers will automatically decompress the .sit file into a folder. If you do not see a new folder with the same name as the SIT  file you just downloaded, drag the SIT file over Un-StuffIt (version 7).

Inside the folder is the help file, called QuickStart.html, a read-me file called ReadMe.rtf (classic OS is called ReadMe.txt) and the application itself, called MovingPicture

Move the resulting MovingPicture file into the PlugIns folder if you are using the Classic Mac OS 8/9 version, or to the  Library\Application Support\Final Cut Pro System Support\Plugins folder if you are using OS X.
