Opening a Project File After Your Computer
Is Unexpectedly Shut Down
If your computer is abruptly shut down, you can open the most recently autosaved
project file after you restart your computer.
In this situation, you have several options:
Â Open the project file and restore the latest autosaved version.
Â Open the latest autosaved version of the project directly from the Finder. In this case,
Final Cut Pro treats the opened autosaved project as a completely separate project,
leaving your original project file unchanged. If you choose this approach, you should
move or copy the autosaved project file to the location where you normally store
your project files and rename it without the additional time and date suffixes added
by the autosave process.
