  • Creating multiple events under each folder

    Posted by Emaduddeen Leiman on March 20, 2024 at 12:17 am

    Greetings Everyone,

    I would like to create multiple events under one folder like this:

    My Library
    Station ID’s (Folder)
    Station ID 1 (Event)
    Station ID 1 (project)
    Resource 1 (video)
    Resource 2 (audio)
    Resource 3 (audio)

    Station ID 2 (Event)
    Station ID 2 (project)
    Resource 1 (video)
    Resource 2 (audio)
    Resource 3 (audio)

    Station ID 3 (Event)
    Station ID 3 (project)
    Resource 1 (video)
    Resource 2 (audio)
    Resource 3 (audio)

    And so on……

    This structure would allow us to keep the resources in an easy to manage way but it seems Final Cut Pro won’t allow us to make a structure like that. The attachment show what we have done and what we have now will get very tedious to manage when there’s a lot of events under one library. We would like it to be as shown above to make it easier for us. Is there a way to make the same structure we are hoping for? That would make it easier for us to have one folder for station ID’s and another folder for interviews, etc.

    Thanks in advance.

    Yes. You can not put Events in Folders, but you can put folders in events. You should explore keyword collections as an organizational tool, as well as Smart Collections. You can have one Event, and in that event is folders for different station IDs. In those folders you would have a keyboard collection for the resources, and a smart Collection that will collect the Project based in certain search criteria (like Type is Project, and Name includes ‘Station ID 1’, or whatever works best for your workflow). It could look like the attached.

    Thanks so much for your reply! I will look for YouTube videos on the structure you described to learn how to set them up.
