A bit of both - let me explain.

The original event and media was all on my Macbook Pro. I wanted it on my iMac Pro, so I launched FCP X on my iMac Pro and then mounted my laptop on the desktop. I was connected to it over WiFi.
In FCP X I opened my Macbook Pro library, found the event and dragged it onto my iMac Pro library.
I chose "consolidate media" and let it work. After about 8 hours, I finally gave up - it was taking forever!

So then I connected a drive on my laptop and copied all the original media and optimized media to it. Then connected that drive to my iMac Pro and dragged it into the appropriate folders where my media is stored.

Now, sure enough, some clips show that they have original media and optimized media (those are probably the ones that finished transferring over Wifi), and others don't show they have optimized media (those are probably the ones that didn't finish, and now the media is in the media folder, but I don't know how to tell FCP X that it's there).

Thanks!
