16. Media Manager

A Final Cut Pro project may contain hundreds of clips and several sequences. The Media Manager lets you process media files in a variety of ways during the life of a project to free up media storage space or to move a project from one storage location to another. Another option in the Media Manager is to create an offline/online workflow where you may start with many hours of low-resolution media for editing, but only reingest the final durations of high-resolution media for finishing.

Using the Media Manager

This simple yet powerful feature of Final Cut Pro can clean up your media or destroy it. Be cautious while choosing your options.
