Quick Tip: FCP Autosave Paths and Moving Folders

The other day, one of our editors noticed that his FCP7 workstation was putting Autosave files in the Trash.  It turns out that he had dragged his Autosave Vault folder out of his Documents folder to the Trash while Final Cut Pro 7 was still running–and FCP kept saving Autosaves to the old folder, even though it was now in the Trash.

This time, we were able to find his Autosaves and get his project back on track, but we felt awfully lucky that he hadn't emptied the Trash (and with it his fresh Autosaves).

To make sure your FCP7 paths are consistent, then, it's a good idea to close FCP before moving files directly in the Finder.  If you forget, just close FCP and reopen it to force FCP to pay attention to the actual paths you have set up in System Settings.
