Modify a project’s name and properties

2 Select a project, and click the project’s name to highlight it. 3 Type a new name in the project Name field, and press Return. Depending on how you have the Project Library organized, the project’s position in the project list may change after you rename it. Change a project’s default event and properties When you create a project, you set the project properties and assign the project a default event to hold media that is dragged directly into the project’s Timeline from a Final Cut Pro media browser or the Finder. In most cases, Final Cut Pro manages project properties automatically based on the properties of the first clip you add to a project, but you can change almost all properties of an existing project. If you must modify the project properties, choose video and audio project properties based on how you intend to share your final movie with your audience. 1 Open the Project Library and select a project. 2 Do one of the following: ••
