If you are on macOS and see `AllData:/` PathMap folder permission errors in the Console tab or during the Reactor install process, it likely means you have deleted the `AllData:/` folder at some point and need to manually re-create the directory. Fusion on macOS appears to lack the permissions required to regenerate that folder automatically.
The error messages would look like:
`[Reactor Error] Disk permissions error when saving: /Library/Application Support/Blackmagic Design/Fusion/Reactor/System/Reactor.lua/`
Here are the macOS terminal commands to re-create the `AllData:` Pathmap folder:
# Re-create the Fusion 9.02 "AllData:" PathMap Folder on macOS:
# Make the folders
sudo mkdir -p "/Library/Application Support/Blackmagic Design/Fusion/"
# -------------------------------------------------------------------
# Change the "Blackmagic Design" folder's owner to root
sudo chown -R "root" "/Library/Application Support/Blackmagic Design/"
# Change the "Blackmagic Design" folder's group to wheel
sudo chgrp "wheel" "/Library/Application Support/Blackmagic Design/"
# Change the "Blackmagic Design" folder permissions to 755 / "drwxr-xr-x"
sudo chmod 755 "/Library/Application Support/Blackmagic Design/"
# -------------------------------------------------------------------
# Change the "Fusion" folder's group to admin
sudo chgrp -R "admin" "/Library/Application Support/Blackmagic Design/Fusion/"
# Change the "Fusion" folder permissions to 777 / "drwxrwxrwx"
sudo chmod 777 "/Library/Application Support/Blackmagic Design/Fusion/"
# -------------------------------------------------------------------
# List the folder contents and permissions
ls -laR "/Library/Application Support/Blackmagic Design"
# Open the Fusion Folder in a Finder browsing window
open "/Library/Application Support/Blackmagic Design/Fusion/"
