Join Jeff I. Greenberg for an in-depth discussion in this video Adding metadata in the Inspector, part of Final Cut Pro X Guru: Sync Sound Workflow.
- One of the great secrets about staying organized…is adding metadata to your information.…Final Cut X has some amazing abilities to adjust metadata.…Now I just want to show you where they live…with the real special flexibility of being able to…quickly rename batches of clips.…So if you take a look at my system here,…I'm just going to look at all the footage…across the entire project.…I'm going to hide the Inspector,…I'm going to hide my Event Viewer here,…I'm in list view.…I'm going to pull this down super tall.…
And you can see where I have all the footage in my system.…Now I could take, for example,…I could sort all of these by type,…I'm going to go ahead and say maybe…group these clips by File Type.…And that's going to put all of my audio together.…All the little pieces of audio that have come in…that are wave files.…I'm going to Shift+Click to select all of those,…just to help you see them.…I've got a little bit of extra metadata here.…Place number one where you can add it where just metadata…is a right-click, where you can say show me all the columns…
