Chapter 12. Big Picture: Managing Complex Projects

Chapter 12. Big Picture: Managing Complex Projects

Media management in a complex project requires creative solutions. Final Cut Pro has a few tools to help you keep your wig on straight as your current project snowballs toward the finish line, even as you're gearing up for the next one.

This chapter covers techniques for working with multiple sequences, including the Nest Items command, which you use to convert a selection of clips in an existing sequence into a self-contained sub-sequence (known as a nested sequence) that's already placed in the existing sequence.

You'll be introduced to Final Cut Pro's media management tools: the Media Manager, and the Reconnect Media and Make File Offline features. You'll also find tips on how to delete files—and how to save them.

Final Cut Pro is a nondestructive, nonlinear editing system, and that design has an impact on the way it handles file management. You'll be much more effective as a media manager if you understand how Final Cut Pro tracks media files and project data before you use the media management tools described in this chapter.
