Storing Composite Footage

Where should I store my composite footage?

You are free to place your composite footage anywhere you like on your computer. Just be sure to understand how you have your import footage set. If you are leaving your media in place on your computer for a project you won’t want to move that media as the Final Cut Pro project library will be pulling the media from that location and will create an alias link to that media dependent on its location. Alternatively, if you import your media and have it create a copy inside the library then the media will automatically create a duplicate inside the Original Media folder in the Final Cut Pro library.
