FCPX: saving files to a drive other than the boot?
How do I get FCPX to save render files to a drive other than the boot drive?
I've installed FCPX on a Mac Pro running a 128GB boot drive and RAID 0 HDDs in the sleds. In the settings I've deselected the option to organize/copy the footage over, but it's still storing the render files (and others) in the ~/Movies folder. Is there a way to change this default to a separate drive? I'm fairly stumped.

You can make a duplicate of your existing project (including render files) and move that to the external. When you start a new project, you can tell FCP where to save it. The render files always stick with the project.

Move the "Final Cut Events" and "Final Cut Projects" folders (stored on boot drive under Movies by default) to wherever you like including external or any additional internal drive you have... I personally keep Final Cut Events on a separate 2TB internal drive with that being the only folder on it and keep Projects under my 2TB boot drive.

There's a file management tutorial video at Creative Cow somewhere.
The basic gist is to drag and drop it from within FCPX and it will handle everything for you.
I'm pretty sure this is it
