If you're a Premium Member of the lynda.com online training library, you have access to the exercise files used throughout this title. The exercise files have been compressed to a ZIP file. Download and uncompress this file, and you'll see a folder called Exercise Files. I'm going to assume you've used Final Cut Pro X before, in which case you have two folders in your Movie folder of your Home Finder. One is called Final Cut Events and one is called Final Cut Projects. To import the content for this course, you want to copy the content of the two folders named the same thing from the exercise files into these two folders in your Movies folder on your Finder.
Don't replace the folders because you don't want to write over anything you might have already been working on in Final Cut Pro. Now when you launch Final Cut Pro, you'll have the LDC Initial Edit exercise project and the media should be online. As for the Pro Tools sessions, I included one master session folder called FARM Audio PT. In here, there are a bunch of Pro Tools 10 session files that correspond to the beginning and end of all appropriate chapters in this course. You'll also find the two external files we use in the course, acoustic song and Birds Morning.
You can double-click the Pro Tools session files to open them, or you can open them from the File menu in Pro Tools. As long as you copy this folder to your work hard drive and don't go moving any files or folders around, all the files should link up. The first time you open a session or if something gets moved, Pro Tools might ask you to re-link the files. In that case, tell Pro Tools to automatically find and re-link, and as long as the files are present on your drive, Pro Tools will be able to find them and bring them online.
If you're a monthly or annual subscriber to lynda.com, and you don't have access to these online training materials, that's okay too. You can follow along with your own media. Let's get started.
