Digital Rebellion Pro Maintenance Tools

Maintain, troubleshoot, and optimize your editing system

Digital Rebellion Pro Maintenance Tools (formerly FCS Maintenance Pack) is a utility pack to keep your Final Cut Studio, Final Cut Pro X, Avid Media Composer, Avid Symphony, or Adobe Premiere Pro Mac running at optimal performance. In addition, it can help resolve problems when they arise.


Show-stopping problems always seem to occur on a deadline – Pro Maintenance Tools is designed to rapidly diagnose and fix common issues, ensuring users get back on track as quickly as possible. With the Task Scheduler utility, maintenance tasks can even be scheduled to run in the background for convenience. System administrators can use Pro Maintenance Tools remotely to maintain, optimize, and troubleshoot their systems in conjunction with Pro Admin.

Minimize Downtime

Perform common troubleshooting tasks at the press of a button so you can get back to work faster.

Analyze Crashes

Analyze your crash logs to find out the cause of a crash and how to resolve it.

Repair Corrupt Files

Fix QuickTime movies and project files that can no longer be opened.

Look Up Error Messages

Type in cryptic error messages you receive from your NLE and receive plain-English explanations.

Manage Plugins

To summarize, easily install, remove, enable, disable, and organize your effects plugins.

Schedule Maintenance

Perform maintenance tasks such as clearing caches or restoring preferences on a schedule.

Network Integration

Use Pro Admin to perform troubleshooting tasks over the entire network at once.

Plugin Installers

In short, developers can use Pro Maintenance Tools to easily create standalone installers for their plugins.

Pro Maintenance Tools 2.2.6 – September 18, 2018

Downgrade Adobe Premiere projects and run scripts inside plugin installers

We recently released Pro Maintenance Tools 2.2.6 with some great new features.

Downgrade Adobe Premiere projects

Project Repair can now downgrade Adobe Premiere projects so they can be opened in earlier versions of Premiere. After downgrading the project, Premiere will report that it was saved in an earlier version and asks you to save a copy. After doing this, the project will now be openable by Premiere.

If you use Premiere features not supported in earlier versions they will of course not work in the earlier version, so be aware of this as Adobe has recently made major changes to features like the titler.

Run scripts inside plugin installers

Plugin Manager can create installers for plugins. This is not just useful for plugin developers to distribute their plugins but can also be an easy way of backing up your plugins or moving them to another computer.

You can now run scripts both before and after installing the files in order to perform additional tasks like running a licensing step, copying or moving files or launching a web page. You can run Applescripts, Bash scripts or Swift scripts (note that some Swift scripts may not work on earlier versions of macOS). The scripts must return 0 otherwise Plugin Manager will abort the installation, which is useful in situations where you want to stop installation if a license or security check fails.

If it knows the project is unsalvageable it will be able to provide a more helpful error message.
