Multiple Final Cut Users can share the same Mac. If users are working on separate projects it may work out best if you have separate user accounts for the shared Mac. There are a number of application preferences that make having an individual user account will allow you to keep personalized. This system also supports important files are not accidentally deleted.


A great way to move in between users is to activate fast user switching. In the System Preferences. Under the Accounts category you will find Login Options. In the Login Optons is where you can chooses to enable Fst User Switching. Fast User switching is very useful when more than one user regularly uses a Mac. If there is a password assigned to the user, it will have to be entered to gain access.

If you're unable to have separate users, a great solution to maintain different Final Cut users is to use the plugin called Final Cut Assistant,  that will save your Final Cut Pro system preferences so you can maintain multiple Final Cut users on one Mac OSX user.

If you are utilizing multiple Mac OSX user accounts, and working on the same Final Cut Pro project, you may want to keep everything on an accessible drive, like the Shared internal drive , or an external hard drive. This way important files are not only available to one user.
