Using Cinema Tools with Final Cut Pro

You can edit most projects directly in Final Cut Pro without needing to open
Cinema Tools. When necessary, Cinema Tools may open in the background to create or
update a database file. If necessary, you can always open Cinema Tools to directly
manage specific fields in a database, such as to correct inaccurate edge code numbers.
