The general concept is drag/drop the project to the new library, then consolidate media. That will copy the project and all related media.

However -- you shouldn't literally do this. There's a specific procedure which should be used when copying media between libraries. Unfortunately this is not documented in most tutorials or Apple's FCPX documentation. Symlinks may not work properly and spurious duplicate clips can occur if dragging clips or projects between non-managed libraries vs dragging an event.

The best practice is don't drag or copy bare clips or projects across libraries but do it inside a "transfer event". Sam Mestman discusses this from 06:30 to 11:00 in the below video, but you may want to watch Sam's whole talk from 02:00 to 11:00. He demonstrates this on a Lumaforge NAS but it's not unique to a NAS.
