Final Cut Pro Video Tutorial: Working with Proxies in FCPX

In this video tutorial by MacBreak Studio, Steve and Mark show us how to work with proxies in FCPX.

Ever have trouble editing files that are too big for your computer to handle? One solution would be going out and buying a really expensive computer, but that can get rather pricy. A better solution would be to use a proxy to edit your footage.

Proxies are lower resolution place-holder footage designed to minimize strain on your computer. However, creating them requires just a little technical know-how. Thankfully Steve and Mark of MacBreak Studio have created a quick tutorial explaining how to use proxies in FCPX. The video covers:

  • Working with Proxies
  • Copying proxies to the correct folders
  • Turning off/on proxy editing in the timeline
