Working with Media Assets

This chapter explains how to edit media assets, including video clips, graphics, and image sequences, in applications other than Final Cut Server. You can edit a managed copy of a media asset by checking out the asset, editing the checked-out file, and then checking the edited file back in. A separate workflow is provided for preparing media files to be used in a new Final Cut Pro project that you create while disconnected from the Final Cut Server network. You can also copy or export an unmanaged copy of a media asset from Final Cut Server.
