Join Lonzell Watson for an in-depth discussion in this video Deleting clips, part of Final Cut Express 4 Essential Training.
As you will approach the completion of your show, your first instinct may be to…delete all of the unused media from your hard drive. This can be very tricky if…you have made sub-clips like we did earlier.…If you make the mistake of deleting a media file that has an associated clip…within your sequence, some of your media in the show will go off-line. You can…tell that a clip has gone off-line when there is a red line to the clip in the…browser or in the sequence. Keep in mind that although you can rename your…sub-clips, they still point back to the original master clip and that master…clip references the captured media located on your hard drive.…
First, I will suggest creating a New Bin titled Unused_Clips to store all of…the clips in the browser that you don't need, instead of deleting them. If you…are absolutely sure that you have not used a clip in your sequence, you can…right-click on that clip in the browser and choose Reveal in Finder to locate…the media file in your hard drive and delete it from there. Be very careful…

Q: After changing the Mac OS X Expose keys to dashes as instructed in the tutorial, the Expose keys -F9, F10, and F11- retain their Expose functions and override the Final Cut keyboard shortcuts. Why have the keys kept their original functions?
A: After setting the Expose Settings to dashes, go into the Mac OS X System Preferences and choose Keyboard. Once there, click on the Keyboard tab, then click to check the box "Use all F1, F2, etc. keys as standard function keys.” This should release F9, F10, and F11 from their Expose functions and allow them to be uses as editing keys in Final Cut.
