FCPX to Finder organization question
on Sep 30, 2013 at 5:05:55 pm

I currently have a project where I need to send the raw footage to an editor.

All of my clips are sorted in FCPX but it is only the broll in which the editor needs.

The issue is that all of my organized footage in FCPX is not organized in the finder - all of the raw clips in the finder are unsorted, and I need a way to mirror the organized clips in FCPX back into finder. Is there a way that this can happen?

Not as such, but you can isolate clips with media management if you want. Place the clips you want to give to your editor in a sequence (project) and then in the project library, duplicate and choose "Duplicate Project + Used Clips". Give it a new event name and reveal the event clips in finder.

Another thought.

Create a new project - (use tagging to isolate your B-roll clips if you haven't already) Dump them into the fresh project. Use down arrow to go to each edit - and Option W to Insert your default Gap as a short spacer between each clip. (if you have a lot of clips, you could setup an Automator script to do this as a batch operation)

Export the storyline as a single video clip and send it to the new editor.

No, you do not get separate clips.

YES, he or she gets ALL the B-roll and visual cues (the Gaps) about how to turn it into separate clips should they wish to.

Imperfect, but aat least pretty fast and effective.

Good luck.
