Controlling Final Cut Pro with Apple Events

Final Cut Pro responds to custom Apple events, allowing developers to write software that can externally modify projects, clips, and sequences directly within Final Cut Pro. By combining Apple events and the Final Cut Pro XML Interchange Format, you can easily customize Final Cut Pro to fit your post-production pipeline. For details about custom Apple events, go to http://developer.apple.com/appleapplications. Apple events documentation can also be found in an appendix of the Final Cut Pro XML Interchange Format documentation.
