[Charlie Austin] "Not really a reply to the thread topic, but on the above point, the 5 bucks spent on Event Manager makes managing projects and events *way* easier than in FCP 7. And FWIW, I've got at least one event that has close to 100 projects (multiple spots with multiple versions) associated with it. The software handles it just fine. It's trivial to organize projects into Folders/Subfolders in the Project Library, and use Event Manager to open and close whatever is needed. "

So how does it handle this when all 100 of each have to be online and accessible? I find that when this is the case, the amount of buffering to RAM that X has to do becomes really cumbersome. So it's not simply a matter of hiding things in a folder, because when you open it (like projects) it takes a long time. Everything has to be ready and skimmable.

Event Manager X is fine, but now you are constantly in a situation of exiting and relaunching the app.
