Creating a New Final Cut Pro Project
In almost all cases, you will edit your film project using a 24 fps (or 23.98 fps in most
NTSC-based workflows) editing timebase. An exception is film projects shot at 24 or
25 fps and edited at PAL’s 25 fps rate.
To create a new project in Final Cut Pro:
Choose File > New Project.
A new project is created with the default name of Untitled Project 1.
Choose File > Save Project As.
A dialog appears where you can name the project and select a location to save it to.
