Lesson 9. Capturing Video > Preparing the Project

Preparing the Project

To begin, you will launch Final Cut Pro and create a new project to use for capturing.

1.
Launch Final Cut Pro by clicking on its icon in the Dock.

When launching Final Cut Pro, any project that was active when you last quit the program will also open.

2.
Close any open projects.

Remember that when no sequences are open, the Canvas and Timeline windows close because there are no open sequences to display.

3.
Choose File > New Project to create a new project.

An Untitled Project tab appears in the Browser window along with a default sequence, Sequence 1.

4.
To rename and save this project, choose File > Save Project As, and type Lesson 9 Project as the new name. Navigate to the Lessons folder on your hard drive and click Save to save the project there.
