Updating your apps

If you've installed Final Cut Pro X v10.0.x, Motion v5.0.x, or Compressor v4.0.x, updates for this app generally appear in the Updates pane of the Mac App Store in OS X Yosemite. If you don't see available updates as expected, try the following steps.

  1. From the Apple menu, choose App Store.
  2. Click the Store menu and make sure you are signed in with the same Apple ID you originally used to purchase these apps. Your ID should be listed in this menu. If needed, sign out, then sign back in again with the correct ID. 
  3. Click the Updates icon in the App Store window. Apply any updates you see listed, including OS X updates.
  4. If available updates still don't appear, click the Purchases icon in the App Store window to see if Final Cut Pro X, Motion, or Compressor are available as separate installations. If so, click the Install button next to each app you want to install.
