10.2 - Customize Default Smart Collections
on Apr 16, 2015 at 4:28:47 am

My normal go to smart collection is for synchronized clips and I would love to have that in every single library automatically. Has anyone figured out a way to customize the new default smart collections?

I would make a library as a template with all the collections you want, and every new library you start would be a dupe of that template.

Otherwise, that's a good feature request.

You might want to try Post Haste from Digital Rebellion. I use it to set up all my new project folders and for me that includes an empty FCPX library. I've just updated the default smart collections in my template library and I'm good to go from now on.

That's a fine workaround for now, but I'm still wondering if their might be away.

It seems like this entry in the preferences plist might be useful:
FFEventLibraryModule.FFEventSidebarModule.selectedItems

And it references what looks like a sample library here:
x-fcproj://localhost/

But that's as far as I could go with that.

No, you can't. But this is in fact a feature I already asked for right after I first saw them. Until then I simply pull any pre-made SCs from a template Library which automatically copies them over. Put in a request.
