Will every event and sequence I make with iMovieX will show up in the browsers?

I do a ton of versions and alternate sequences of spots and 30 minute shows for a bunch of different clients and it seems like the browsers will get cluttered up really quick. I don't see a way around this, is there one?

First the in-FCPX solutions:
Events cannot be placed into folders, so they are all open when the disk is mounted
Projects can be put into folders, so that helps

outside FCPX
there is an app (i think it´s called eventmanagerX), I don´t use it, because I use the next method, but I heard it works good

The easy way is to create directories where you park your events and projects. I always have a structure "year/client/project/" in here I create "FCPEventsParked" and "FCPProjectsparked". Once you drag your Event and Project out of the "root/Final Cut Events" and "root/Final Cut Projects" they are not visible in FCPX anymore. Takes a second.

Actually...I might take a look at this eventmanager app myself now, haha.

I can thoroughly recommend EventManagerX.

I too would really recommend EventManagerX.

I've got EventManagerX on my dock next to FCP X and it's really easy to use.

As time passes having control over your events becomes more essential. FCP X works better with less clutter. That's with both events and projects.

Thanks for the tips, guys. I'll give EventManager a look.
