FCP Offline to Online Workflows
on Sep 19, 2010 at 9:04:45 pm

Can anyone point me in the right direction of some tutorials regarding offline and online workflows in FCP.

I've looked online but it seems to be a needle in a haystack topic.


I've got a whole project on my Macpro, I've media managed it to an Offline RT (HD) format. I want to be able to take it on my laptop when I'm away from my Macpro to work on it, and then update back onto the Macpro when I'm back. I'd like to be able to do this as much as possible.

Thanks in advance.

I'm using FCP 7 on both machines.

The easiest way to accomplish this is to copy all the media that you have on the mac pro to an external drive as an exact copy of what's on the mac pro. If you update something on the mac pro.. say for e.g you add some music and a photoshop file then you should do the same thing on the external.. If you keep everything exactly the same on both the external and mac pro media drive. you can simply exchange only the project files between computers and all the media will re-link.

Is there not a way to do a workaround without an external hard drive. The amount of media is about 250GB. The offline media is only about 17GB.

What about if I cut the offline stuff and then export and EDL?

just copy the offline media and the project file to your mac pro then.. That should work fine as well.. The key thing to remember is just to be sure that both computers have the exact media.
