Final Cut Pro X: View the status of shared projects in Final Cut Pro

View the status of shared projects in Final Cut Pro

When you share a project, you can monitor the progress of the transcode in the Background Tasks window, and you can continue to work in Final Cut Pro while the file is transcoded. When transcoding is complete, a notification appears.

You can view the share history of a project and locate shared projects using the Share inspector.

If you share your project or clip to a web destination, you can also use the Share inspector to go to the website where the video was shared or send an email that includes the URL where the video was shared. If you share your project or clip using the Master File destination (or any custom destinations you create based on the Master File destination), you can locate the shared file in the Finder.
