1.Spotlight Comments.
2.The shared directory needs to grant read access to the group or individual users who need to work with the project files. If you want collaborators to be able to save changes to the file in the shared directory, they will also need to have write permissions.
4.File locking will override Unix permissions.
5.You should only rely on a backup system that has redundancy built in.
6.The Restore option enables you to open projects that have been archived in the Autosave Vault.
7.Immediately save the file once you have restored it.
8.You can export either an EDL or XML file to import a FCP 5 project into FCP 4.1. XML interchange was introduced in version 4.1—it is the recommended format.
9.You can share button bars, window arrangements, hardware setups, plug-ins, and keyboard layouts across a network.
10.The fundamental difference between captured media and render files is that captured media is transferred onto your system from an external source, whereas rendered media is generated on your computer.
