Join Diana Weynand for an in-depth discussion in this video Organizing footage into folders, part of Final Cut Pro X v10.1.x: Effective Storytelling.
- When you're shooting your production,…there are a million distractions.…Lights, sound, swapping camera cards,…finishing before the sunset.…You may not know the answer to,…"What did you actually get?",…until you start screening your footage.…But screening footage isn't something…you do just once inside Final Cut Pro.…It requires repetition and begins on the desktop level.…I want to show you how I prepared…the files for your exercises.…This is a folder that you won't see in your exercise files.…I just want to show you how we prepared the clips for you.…
Some of the clips are loose, in this folder,…and some have already been placed into folders.…For example, the Coffee Growing folder…contains individual clips...…of the coffee growing.…Simply, by placing all of these clips together,…it tells you a couple of things.…First of all, it just simply organizes very cleanly…and neatly all of these clips together in one location.…And, by the way, when you do this work…on the desktop level, this work will…also be recognized inside of Final Cut Pro…
Note: This course was updated to reflect the changes to Final Cut Pro X v. 10.1.x.

We also updated the exercise files to work with the most current version of the software.
