Can FCPX use Thunderbolt external LaCie Drive?
on Jun 15, 2013 at 12:11:27 pm

I am running out of space on my SSD in the MBP, however I have a LaCie 4TB BigDisk Thunderbolt, but have not been able to get FCPX to make any use of that. Can it be done? How?

Thanks in advance,
Paul

Perhaps its not correctly formated. I use 3TB Lacie, bought it, connected it, works.

I have the 1TB LaCie Thunderbolt drive connected via Thunderbolt and am using it at this instant and it works fine.

I regularly use a TB drive with FCPX. Do you see the drive in the event browser?

create a FINAL CUT EVENTS folder and FINAL CUT PROJECTS folder on the root level of the external drive.

Final cut will then recognize the ext drive and treat it the same as it treats these folders on your system drive or any other drive
