Join Abba Shapiro for an in-depth discussion in this video Importing and analyzing media from a folder on your computer, part of Migrating from Final Cut Pro 7 to Final Cut Pro X (2011).
Before you can start editing we need to bring some media into Final Cut Pro.…Now the way media is handled in Final Cut Pro X is in some ways radically…different than in previous versions of Final Cut Pro, and in other ways is very similar.…The first thing you need to do to bring media into Final Cut Pro is go to the…File menu and go Import Files.…Now the keyboard shortcut is a little different than you might expect.…It's Shift+Command+I. Go ahead and select Import Files, and you'll notice…this dialog window.…
Now we can add our imported media to an existing event, which we've touched…on a little bit earlier, or in our case we want to create a new event…specifically for this footage.…This will allow us to do two things.…one easily organize a footage and two, we're going to target this footage to go…to an external drive or in our case a scratch drive.…I am going to click on Create New Event and I am going to call this…event Additional footage.…And as you can see I can save this to my original drive or at any external drive…
