View Full Version : Move Final Cut Pro render and capture scratch directories

Apr 10, 2010, 03:48 PM
Hi, I was wondering if it was possible to have final cut pro capture my video and put the render files on a separate external drive instead of the default macintosh hd? I work with 720p and 1080p video and anyone who works with that knows that hard drive space is vital! lol. Is there a setting I need to change for this to work? Or is it even possible. thanks!
