Creating a New Final Cut Pro Project

In almost all cases, you will edit your film project using a 24 fps (or 23.98 fps in most NTSC-based workflows) editing timebase. An exception is film projects shot at 24 or 25 fps and edited at PAL’s 25 fps rate.

To create a new project in Final Cut Pro
  1. Choose File > New Project.

    A new project is created with the default name of Untitled Project 1.

  2. Choose File > Save Project As.

    A dialog appears where you can name the project and select a location to save it to.

  3. Click Save.
