Join Nick Harauz for an in-depth discussion in this video Using the exercise files, part of Final Cut Pro X Guru: Compressor Exporting.
- If you are a member who has access to the download files you'll be sent a Final Cut Pro library including media to use in this course. These downloads can be stored on your desktop, your documents folder or even externally on a hard drive. To open the library, simply double click it. Or alternatively, in Final Cut, go to file, open library, other and navigate to where you saved it. When you open the library you'll see it consists of two events: one containing the project files we'll be working with and the other containing assets within all of your projects.
Now you guys will see a warning symbol here on the project event. Don't worry about it, just ignore it. It's not gonna affect your project in any way and you guys will be fine in order to follow along with the course. If your membership doesn't allow you access to the lesson files, don't worry. There's still a ton to learn even by following along with your own footage or a trial version of Final Cut Pro 10.
