Join Abba Shapiro for an in-depth discussion in this video Preparing the interface, part of Final Cut Pro X v10.0.9: Narrative Scene Editing.
Before we get started editing our narrative film, let's make sure that our user interfaces…all look the same, so it'll be easier for you to follow along whether you're using the…exercise files or using your own files.…The first thing I want you to do is open up your Viewer window, and this is located under…the Window dropdown menu, and it says Show Event Viewer, and you'll see a new window…showing up in the middle.…Now this is very useful if I select a clip in my Event Library, I can actually view it…and skim through it without affecting the clips that are showing up from my timeline.…
The other changes that I want you to make is to adjust how we're viewing items in our…Event Browser, and you can of course view that as a filmstrip view or as a list view,…but what I want you to do is go over here to this cog and make some changes.…To make things easier to see, let me go ahead and stretch out this window here to the right…and bring this window down, so you can see a little bit more real estate.…
