    I have a copy of FCP, and I was planning on eventually getting an external HD. Is it more efficient to install FCP onto your normal HD, then have all your work on your external, or install FCP onto your external and run it from there? I know it is preference, but I was just wondering if there were advantages/disadvantages. Thanks a lot. I'm running on a MBP.

    All your apps on the same drive as the OS and all your media on a separate drive.

    The FCP application can only be installed on a bootable (start-up) drive.
