Final Cut Pro Workflow and Media Management
This is another in Larry Jordan’s Fundamentals of Final Cut Pro Series. Designed as an introduction to file management and workflow in Final Cut Pro, this session starts with an 11-step "What Should I Be Doing Right Now?" workflow to help you decide how to complete your project most efficiently. Then this showcases many of the file handling, optimizing, managing, and querying features of the program. See the Content Outline, below, for a complete list.
You should have a basic knowledge of Final Cut Pro. Most, but not all, of these techniques apply to both Final Cut version 6 & 7. This tutorial will be especially helpful if you consistently have trouble getting projects done on time, have a hard time getting organized, or want to better understand how Final Cut handles media.
