Selecting Items to Process with the Media Manager

Before you can use the Media Manager, you need to select which clips, bins, sequences, or clip items in sequences you want to process. The items you select (and the master-affiliate clip relationships of those items) determine which clips and media files are processed.

Here are some examples of what you can select to process with the Media Manager:

Important: Media files that do not have a source timecode track or reel name are never trimmed shorter, transcoded, or made offline. This is because a media file without a reel name and timecode may not come from a source that would allow you to recapture the media, so Final Cut Pro errs on the side of safety so that you don’t accidentally lose any of this media file.
