    I need to change the Final Cut Pro serial number so it doesn't conflict with another computer on my network. Does anyone know what I need to delete in order to get the registration screen to come up again? I have tried deleting the entire app, but once reinstalled it still has the old serial number assigned to it.

    i think Laslo gave you that path so you can find and delete the .plist which contains your reg. data for FCP. not to open and edit it.

    Actually Laslo, that preference file does not house the Serial Number.

    The FCP Serial Number is housed in the "Final Cut Pro System ID" file

    Library -> Application Support -> ProApps -> Final Cut Pro System ID
