Simple tip to move footage from one project to another – FCP X

Sometimes we overlook the most obvious of things – because we get too close to an application we do not consider how the world looks as a new comer to a program like FCP X:

I had a question from a student today:
“When you have made a project and then go on to another project is there any possible way of copying some footage from a project and transferring it to another one?”

Select the footage in the first project – copy it (Command C) open the second project. Put your play head where you want the footage to go and Paste (Command V) It is pasted into the primary storyline as an insert. If you want it as a attached clip (B roll), then right click and select “lift from Primary storyline”
