Lesson 12. Managing Final Cut Pro > Managing Media Files

Managing Media Files

In Final Cut Pro, media is defined as video, audio, still images, and motion graphics. Some of your media will have timecode that connects it to external sources; other media will have been created on a computer; or in the case of stock footage, music, and sound effects libraries, the media will come from non-timecode-based sources. You need to develop a system to keep track of your files and effectively manage each resource. FCP contains a number of tools to help you manage media assets, and you need to develop routines to preserve others.

Captured Media

Captured media files are automatically stored in the Scratch Disk directory or directories you defined in the System Settings window. The most appropriate place to store your media is determined by your system configuration and the specific requirements of your workflow. (Refer to Lesson 3 for suggestions on how to organize your media files.)
