Saving space on a Final Cut Studio Install

When Installing Final Cut Studio there are a couple ways to save hard drive space, when doing the installation of the software. The most space can be saved by not installing the Audio Content. The next greatest savings of space is the Motion Content, and last of all, space can saved by not installing DVD Theme Elements. Final Cut Pro only takes 630mb of space when installed, and all of the Final Cut Studio applications together take up less than 2gb of space.

To choose to not install certain space intensive options, all you need to do is uncheck the box next to the option. You will see the Space Required total adjust itself, as you uncheck these boxes. If you need the content, but don't have space on your internal hard drive, you can install the content in a separate location. For example, you may choose to install the content on an external hard drive to save space. By clicking on the destination folder, you can reassign the install location. This is also a solution for improving efficiency. Final Cut will read files quicker from a high speed external drive, and If you are on a shared sever based system, it would only make sense to have the content installed once on the sever, rather than on every local machine.
