With that in mind, in this lesson you’ll learn about strategies to streamline Mac OS X, various optimization tools, and some power user tips to further support your workflow. If you prefer a shortcut to setting up your preferences for FCP, you can skip to the end of this chapter and read the “System Preferences Checklist” section.
