If you are a Premium Member of the lynda.com online training library, or if you're watching this tutorial on a DVD, you have access to the exercise files used throughout this title. On the desktop I have the exercise files that I've downloaded from the lynda.com site. Notice that they contain Final Cut Event for our project and the project itself. Let's open a new Finder window and go to Movies on the sidebar. If you've launched Final Cut and saved a Final Cut Event in projects, Final Cut will have created these folders for you.
All you need to do is drag the form to table folder into the Final Cut Events folder that you already have and the same for the projects. Drag the Documentary Editing project into Final Cut Projects. Now if you go to Movies, and you don't have either of those folders, then what you'll want to do is drag the entire Final Cut Events and Final Cut Projects folder into this location. If you're not a premium subscriber to lynda.com you don't have access to the exercise files, but you can follow along from scratch with your own assets.
Let's get started.
This course is part of a series that looks at documentary editing from the point of view of 3 different editors in 3 different editing applications.
