If Final Cut Pro X, Motion, or iMovie for macOS menus appear distorted and colorized

If menus appear distorted and colorized after updating to Final Cut Pro 10.4.7, Motion 5.4.4, or iMovie 10.1.13, turn off "Reduce transparency" in System Preferences.

When opening Final Cut Pro 10.4.7, Motion 5.4.4, or iMovie for macOS 10.1.3 after updating, menus may appear distorted and fragmented. They might also be transparent, or colored magenta, pale-green, or other unexpected colors. This can also affect other app or Finder menus.

To correct this, choose Apple menu > System Preferences > Accessibility, click Display in the left sidebar then click the Display button. Deselect "Reduce transparency" if it's selected, then close System Preferences.
