moving sorted events from one machine to another
on Oct 31, 2013 at 1:46:33 am

Hi...

I am trying to use my laptop to sit and sort footage and then take it all into my mac pro for editing. I don't seem to be able to get this right. For instance..... I want to hide/favourite/write notes/keywords and multicam clips/favourite/keyword etc.. all ready for dropping into the timeline later on the mac pro. However when I try and copy the Final Cut Event folder, into the same folder on the mac pro, this does not work... at least on importing?

What is the correct work flow? do I have to make a project file to go with this (even with nothing on the timeline) and MOVE Projects with clips to a external drive and then the Mac Pro should find it or what?

Thanks.

Thanks for all your help
Anita Sancha.

Hi, Anita.

How are the two machines connected?

How are you getting media from the laptop to the MacPro?

They are on the same network. so I copied from the finder to finder. maybe I should use external hard drive to move these Event files anyway.... it took too long to be practical.... Should I try via external hard drive?

Thanks for all your help

[anita sancha] "They are on the same network. so I copied from the finder to finder. "

And you put the Event folder in your "movies" folder on the MacPro?

If you use an external hard drive, you will simply "Copy" the Event to the external using FCPX, plug in the external to the MacPro, launch FCPX, and everything will be ready to go.
