How to Use Final Cut Pro Part 2/4
And now I’m going to go over is your System Settings. This is one of the most important windows you’ll find. It is where you set your scratch disk, the first folder into your scratch disk and I have mine set to an external FireWire 800 drive, and you can have this up to twelve scratch disks, so sixteen scratch disks.
This is where Final Cut Pro is going to save all the window files, save its Auto Save projects, blah-blah-blah. It’s best to have a fast hard drive, Eset or FireWire drive set to your scratch disks. So we can saturate the band width as much as possible.
Now the internal disk usually isn’t as fast as an external FireWire 800 so unless you got a raptor you wouldn’t set your scratch disk to the fastest disk possible. Now this down here you can set to your scratch disks also. It will select your wave form within and you auto save. You can put this wherever you want but always you can set with my scratch disk.
This down here minimum level free space on scratch disks, that is the little old secret in the industry that the more full your hard drive gets, the slower it is going to perform. So this allows you to maximum number that you want it to fill up too. So you always have a certain amount space empty so performance won’t suffer.
Limit capture export files segment size to, don’t worry about that, Limit capture now, this is if you’re using a video camera like you’re doing amateur or capture a video straight into Final Cut, you can stop capturing after 30 minutes so you won’t forget to turn your camera off and capture 100 gigs with the video but I don’t use capture now so I will leave it uncheck.
Search folders, you can sit watch folders that Final Cut Pro will search when the media file has become disconnected or it can’t find it. You set the folders you want it to search and it will automatically search.
Memory crashed, I always leave mine set to about a 100% but I recommend about 90%, still cash you can have a bit even more to 15% but I keep mine on 10% so these are the play backs controls. It let’s you adjust your video quality like if your video quality in your canvas isn’t great, it is probably because it is set to low which helps real time play back. I set mine to dynamic because I’ve got a strong system which it dynamically adjusts. You can set it to high. They have the best quality render you can get while you are working but no matter what this is set to, when you expert your project it will be the highest quality it can be.
And frame rate that is pretty self explanatory I leave mine set to dynamic also. Record, full quality or use playback settings, I’ll leave mine own full quality and that is the first four tabs of the system settings. That is the easy set up window and the system settings window and the user preferences.
Those are the main deals you need to look up in these boxes. There is one more called audio video settings but I am going over this later. This just lets you set up your sequence presets and your capture presets and your device presets, so that is really all that does. We’ll get to that later. So next time on my next video, we’re going to go over organization, we’re going to learn how to organize our browser and our bins. And after we do that and we can go to editing a little bit. That is next the browser.
