- Before we get started editing our narrative film,…let's make sure that our user interfaces…all look the same so it will 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 drop down 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 effecting 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.…You can of course view that as a film strip 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.…Now you'll probably be seeing a lot more…
Note: This course was updated to reflect the changes to Final Cut Pro X v. 10.1.x. Although the course was not re-recorded from scratch, we updated each of the movies by adding text overlays to guide you to existing changes. We also updated the exercise files to work with the most current version of the software. Please watch the "Understanding this update and using the exercise files" movie to learn exactly what to expect from this updated course. Working with an earlier version of Final Cut Pro X? Watch Narrative Scene Editing with Final Cut Pro X 10.0.9.
