I just finished viewing the Tapeless Workflow for FCP. Everything seemed to be working great...then I got a message that I had low space on Mac HD. I didn't want the footage to go there to begin with. I have all of my Capture Presets set to log into an external drive that has plenty of space. Is there another way to change the drive in the Log and Transfer window? I don't remember seeing that option in the tutorial. Thanks.
Yes. The error message was listing my system drive. However, my capture presets are set to my external?? Strange. I searched my system drive and located all of the files. This is strange. Should I move them over? Or leave them as is?
Ok. I will try that. Should I delete the clips that are in my logging Bin? Some of them transferred over. I assume you mean to just start fresh. In fact, I may just delete them all together and start the L&T all over again after trashing preferences.
My only concern is that I have multiple projects going on right now. If I trash my preferences will it mess up my current sequence settings in each project?? I really hard a hard time getting them right to begin with.
Why trash what you have imported? Why redo all that work? just copy them to another drive, and when that is done, remove them from the system drive. Then bring the ones on the new drive into FCP...or reconnect.
Trashing your preferences resets only SYSTEM SETTINGS and USER PREFERENCES, like how often the autosave happens, how many realtime audio tracks you have...all that stuff will have to be reset. And before you trash, save your keyboard layouts and window layout...so that you can recover those too.
