    This is way better than the vast majority of tutorials out there. I just wish I could get a straight forward answer on how to organize my documentary with several years of footage. A “chalkboard theory” session would be useful to get an idea of how the projects, events, etc are supposed to work because it’s different than what I’m used to.

    (Note from Ripple: Your question about documentary organization is perfect for our new One-On-One Sessions)

    I have been a big fan of Ripple Training for 10 years plus. Whenever something new about FCPX or Motion appears I always look to Ripple Training first to understand the ins and outs of the changes. Media Management is not the most exciting subject, but it is vital to understanding how FCPX handles your media so you understand where your media is and how to manipulate it. If you understand what this tutorial teaches, you will never wonder what happened to your media, project, event or library. This Tutorial dives deep and shows you how to import your media, move your media and back up and store your media and libraries. This is a must have if you use FCPX and have many libraries on many drives. This is a great roadmap. Thanks Ripple Training Team!!

    I held off on this tutorial as I thought I knew everything (over the years of using FCPX).
    But, I did not and this set have made me work in a different way which allows me to save time fluffing about with missed media when working from home and office.
    Explained in such a way that it becomes second nature in a short time – well worth it and I should have bought it ages ago!!
