Is there a maximum size of a project that can be held on FCP time line?

You mean how many hours of footage can fit in the timeline? I believe it's 12 hours.

Thanks Rob for your information. I was asking for for friend who is trying to figure out if a 90 minute narrative at 1080 24p can be on one timeline or would they have to break it up in to segements. I felt it was an awkward question since there are so many variables. However, twelve hours that in itself interesting.

I wouldn't recommend editing in one timeline for a 90-minute project. Not because it isn't doable, but it is easier to manage and visualize the over arching story if you divide the project into segments/sequences. In my experience, the point at which you'd cut to commercial would mark the end of a segment/sequence. Make sense?

I wouldn't ever work in a timeline that is 12-hours long either, haha. The only time I have scene that is when I was an assistant and editors were pulling selects into a timeline.

Anyway, glad I could help you and your friend.
