I want all videos to my external HDD and not my laptop's HDD and Final Cut Pro does not give this option. I am not wanting to use my MBA's free space for video editing. How can I define the location of videos in Final Cut Pro?

Change the Save to location to be your external drive.

Since 10.1 you can also create a library which can be stored externally. See:

  • I see it is that easy -- just create a new library and move that to the new HDD -- and how do you move a project from one library to another library? – hhh Apr 21 '14 at 3:26
  • @hhh Just drag it inside FCPX – grg Apr 21 '14 at 7:08
  • Can you clarify how to drag it inside FCPX? – hhh Apr 21 '14 at 11:14
  • @hhh Have both libraries open, find the project in the library and drag it from the browser to the other project. – grg Apr 21 '14 at 11:16
