Final Cut Pro 7: November 2008 Archives

Getting clips and or images in the correct order before bringing them into your sequence can be easily achieved using the File Browser in Final Cut Pro. There are a couple of important steps to follow, but if the process is followed correctly the result is efficiency. 
Being able to easily find media files, like Quicktime movies or photos, is an important step in an effective Final Cut Pro editing workflow. Adding data (metadata) that describes a file will allow the Spotlight feature to find the file, even if you don't remember what you named it or where you stored it. The Spotlight is a great tool to quickly find the file you need.

A great workflow is to ingest media as a whole i.e. an entire tape, and the export subclips to create stand alone media. Instead of beating up your tape deck, ingest the entire tape, and use subclips in Final Cut Pro to create self contained media.

At GeniusDV we take pride when we find students who are using contemporary workflows that utilize both technology and forward thinking. Tom Whaley is a perfect example of that type of student. Tom has been in the industry for almost 40 years, and has seen many changes. Tom's willingness to adapt has kept him current and cutting edge.

Instead of opening a sequence in the time line if you are attempting to use a portion of it in another sequence, you can open a sequence in the viewer. From the File Browser you can drag it to the viewer or option double click on a sequence, and it will open in the viewer. Any portion of the sequence that you bring in to another sequence will come in as a nest, so it makes more sense to use this function if you are looking to select a composition from a sequence. Otherwise it is a better idea to just open the a sequence in the timeline and either copy and paste or do a match frame.
