By default, Final Cut Pro X shows all mounted events and projects, at all times. Those of us used to working in a more project-focused NLE -- the kind that isolates one client's files from another's -- may want a bit more control over FCP X's management. This is where the new $4.99 app Event Manager X comes in. Here's the list of features:
While Apple provides a manual way to manage the visibility of Events and Projects within the Final Cut Pro X interface, it provides no way to keep track of Events or Projects that are on a drive that is not mounted, either deliberately or by accident.
- Manage which Events and Projects are visible using simple checkboxes
- Keep track of invisible (but mounted) Events and Projects
- Keep track of unmounted Events and Projects
- Check that all drives that hold needed Events are correctly mounted
- Never suffer the embarrassment of an Event or Project showing to the wrong client
Event Manager X automates the process of managing Events and Projects. Underneath the interface it is doing exactly what Apple recommends, but more conveniently.
Here's a screenshot:
