Post Haste App for Final Cut Pro Organization

post_haste_icon.pngI discovered a great organization tool for Final Cut Pro called Post Haste.  It's an app you can download for free to help you set up your asset folders and project files.  Here at GeniusDV, we highly advocate setting up your project folders/files ahead of time, and this handy little app does essentially the same thing with a little "kick start".

Post Haste simply asks for some user defined input such as project number, client, date, editor, etc, and makes a copy of the template folder to either a pre-defined or your choice of location, and renames both the project folder and any files with the name "Template" with the input collected earlier.
post_haste.pngpost_haste_project.pngWhat's nice about Post Haste is the ability to customize it to your own needs.  When you first open the application, you will see a dialog box asking if you wish to customize the template.  Choosing Customize will open up the template folder and allow you to reorganize the folder structure, or copy your own into this folder.  Preferences also allow you to choose how many fields to prompt, provide defaults for any of the fields, auto-format the date field, and more.

The key here is keeping your project files organized, whether you're using Post Haste, or your own media management system; it's going to save you a lot of time and help you to be a more efficient editor.
