how to make imac pro decrease the time to save using more of its capacity?...

All the FCPX libraries use external media (not managed media). All that media is in one big folder...Every time I sync the drive, my assistant editor has to relink the files even though the root folder names are identical. This is a colossal waste of time....Anyone know what is causing this and how to fix it?

Lastly, last time it happened. I found a log file:..

A 30 second clip took 10 minutes to export on my Mac Pro (16 core, W5700X). I was expecting this, since I'd read that hardware encoding wasn't supported in FCPX...

I will try your steps on a different project since already started manually editing it. Thanks again I'll let you know how it turns out.

Thanks for that correction. Yes if you select a bunch of red "missing media" files, then do File>Relink Files, and pause at that screen, you can cursor down and one by one, it will show the expected file pathname at the bottom. However there's no way to obtain a comprehensive list.

DaveMaine wrote: I am using FCPX as a media management tool as well. What I do differently is leave the media in place wherever it exists, and just bring in the file reference. It keeps the library much smaller in the single library...
cofe wrote: ... Why not FCPx as your MAM? Depending on your project sizes you can make libraries self contained (store media within the container)...I store the original media externally, but keep the FCPx proxies within the library container. I edit in proxy mode and when I need footage from another project I just open that Lib and FCPx will pull the enquired proxy into the current Lib when I edit the clip into a timeline. When I need to online I either just connect the online drive(s) or copy it into the current projects external online media location via the consolidate command.
You could even create custom Libs that hold all those generic clips you encounter over time for quicker access.
This system needs a little planning and discipline but you avoid another software and all the potential hassles Joema listed. It also might be nicely assisted with PostLab, even more so with a proxy workflow in the cloud via their upcoming 'Drive' feature.

I've read that the GPU speed improvement is potentially double with the 5600M, will I see a speed boost if I upgrade to identical machine with the 5600 M ?..

BUT since I've just started wrapping my head around the FCPX metadata, I wasn't sure if I really needed something (if it exists) that can sync with all the FCPX metadata. Do I need all the FCPX metadata accessible in an asset management setup?
