Duplicate or Snapshot
on Sep 29, 2017 at 2:35:50 pm

So I just finished the first rough cut of my video. I'm expecting client changes. In FCP 7 I would just copy the sequence to a new sequence and call it Sequence 2.

I see that you can either Duplicate a project or duplicate a snapshot of the project. Am I correct to assume that Snapshot will be the way to go, so I can make client changes to the project while preserving the first cut?

I don't really have compound clips in the rough cut.

Can I change the Snapshot label to call it - (Name of Project) Version #2? Any downside to doing this?

How do you folks make copies of your timelines?

What is the advantage of duplicating a project? When is that the way to go over a snapshot?

Thanks so much.
