A dumb newbie question I know, but dumb newbie I am.
Using Final Cut Pro X.
I am trying to make 'physical' copies of selected clips that I want to keep without having to use the original source all the time.
For example. Say I have many episodes of a Tv series but I want to keep certain clips from them backed up without having to keep the original full source material, i.e physically 'cut' the clips from the orignal source, so that further down the line I just have the clips without having to reload the entire episodes.
At the moment I have a series of folder with clips in but they are all tied to the original source. I realise that if I want to keep the orignal full episode complete I will need two copies, one for hacking to pieces and one as a master.
I hope I have explained that correctly, I know it is a very simple newbie thing that I am missing and my palm is more than ready to meet my forehead, but I just cannot work it out.
That was a help. My problem was I hadn't quite figured out Keywords and Smart collection and how they all figure in the grand scheme of things. I had checked out You Tube a few times before but if one isn't to sure at what they are looking for its a bit of a jumble, and of course a severe case of brain freeze doesn't help. But the penny has dropped, it has all clicked in to place, brain is working much better now.
Much appreciated you taking the time to link things up for me. Very kind.
