Join Abba Shapiro for an in-depth discussion in this video Organizing media in the Event Library, part of Migrating from Final Cut Pro 7 to Final Cut Pro X (2011).
In the previous movie we imported media into an event.…In this movie we're going to go a little bit deeper and explain how events…think, where they live in the Finder, and how best to manage them.…A thing to keep in mind when you look at Event Library is the word Library.…Think iTunes or Aperture or iPhoto. Those are all libraries of all of the…footage or all of the music that you have and you can group those into…subcategories of like 80s music, classical music, top 25 music.…It works the same way in Final Cut Pro X. Now what we're going to do is we're…going to clean house a little bit.…
If you've actually played with Final Cut Pro X as you watch me import it…or even on the side, you might have some additional libraries that could…kind of confuse the issue.…So I want to show you where in the Finder your event libraries live and also…where projects live.…Now what I would like you to do is quit Final Cut Pro.…Don't just hide it.…You'll need to quit it so that when it restarts it finds the new libraries.…
