FCPX Hacks is a free and open source Hammerspoon script that adds a mountain-load of new features to Final Cut Pro. It originally started off as a little proof of concept project to make finding the browser playhead easier for Scott Simmons (read the original blog post below) – but has since grown into a huge collection of handy workflow hacks, shortcuts, tools and automation features to make editing within Final Cut Pro faster, easier and much more powerful.
FCPX Hacks requires Final Cut Pro 10.3 (or above) and Hammerspoon 0.9.52 (or above).
It’s compatible with macOS 10.10.5 (or above), and works with any language and keyboard layout.
The Touch Bar feature requires macOS Sierra 10.12.1 build 16B2657 (or above).
We recommend changing the Hammerspoon Notification alert style to Alerts. This can be done in the Notifications section of macOS System Preferences once Hammerspoon has been installed.
FCPX Hacks is compatible with Final Cut Pro 10.2.3, however it’s no longer supported and new features will not be added for this older version – we recommend updating to Final Cut Pro 10.3. Earlier versions of Final Cut Pro X are not supported, and FCPX Hacks is not designed to have Final Cut Pro 10.2 and 10.3 on the same system. It does not work with Final Cut Pro 7 (or below).
