How to organise footage, folders and libraries for Final Cut Pro X

How to organise footage, folders and libraries for Final Cut Pro X

This week i’m sharing how to organise footage, folders and libraries for Final Cut Pro X. This is just my process which I’ve developed after finding things getting messy when working on big projects in Final Cut Pro X.

Organising your footage is essential to keep your Final Cut Pro workflow speedy and tidy and to keep you from going mad!

How and When to use libraries, events, projects in Final Cut took me ages to learn and get used to so hopefully this video will save you some time and effort. I also talk a bit about when my projects are finished and ensuring my hard drives don’t get full with old and un-needed footage.

Enjoy, and I’ll see you next time!
