Lesson 8. Browser Basics and Project Cus... > Choosing an Easy Setup Preset

Choosing an Easy Setup Preset

Customizing the Final Cut Pro interface is a personal choice, but choosing the audio/video settings is not. It's very important for FCP sequence settings to match the settings of the footage you will be editing. This will give you the best results throughout your editing process. Whether your project is NTSC or PAL, FCP has the flexibility to work with many different media formats in both standards and can also be connected to third-party hardware that expands those options even further.

FCP makes it easy to choose accurate audio/video settings by providing a list of default settings found in the Easy Setup window. These settings are organized as presets and include capture settings, sequence settings, device control settings, and output settings. By choosing an Easy Setup preset, you are simultaneously loading all these settings at one time. Keep in mind that Easy Setup presets change settings for all new sequences and are not attached to a specific project. A single project could contain sequences with different settings.
