The Final Cut Pro X Cookbook contains recipes that will take you from the importing process and basic mechanics of editing up through many of FCPX’s advanced tools needed by top-tier editors on a daily basis. Edit quickly and efficiently, fix image and sound problems with ease, and get your video out to your client or the world easily.
In this article by Jason Cox, we will see the following topics:
- Importing from a tapeless video camera
- Importing MTS, M2TS, and M2T files
- Appending, inserting, and overwriting clips to a storyline
- Working with (and without) the Magnetic Timeline
- Creating connected clips
Most artists have it easy—a painter grabs a brush, some paint and goes straight for the canvas. A writer grabs a pen and paper (or keyboard) and starts writing. A graphic artist grabs a tablet and starts drawing. If only it were that easy for video editors!
Well before an editor can start doing any actual work, we've got to spend a good amount of time getting organized and importing our media. The act of importing is simply the process of bringing our media inside FCPX and making the program aware of its existence. It's very similar to dragging a song file into iTunes—the song file already existed in some capacity, but by dropping it into iTunes, we're making iTunes aware that it exists. The same goes for FCPX in most cases.
Unlike the digital music world, however, which only has a small handful of file formats, the digital video world has dozens, and the process for importing these different media types can vary greatly. And, to top it all off, we have many options to consider as to how we want FCPX to process and handle that media as it is imported!
FCPX can import many kinds of media, but there are many factors that must be considered before doing so to determine the best workflow for a project, and where there's a will there's a way—even if FCPX can't immediately import certain file types or projects from other programs, this chapter will help explain workarounds to do the impossible!Read Importing videos and basic editing mechanics in full
In this article by Marc Delisle, we will learn how to bring back exported data that we create for backup or transfer purposes. Exported data may also come from authors of other applications, and could contain the whole foundation structure of these applications and some sample data.
The current phpMyAdmin version (3.1) can import files containing MySQL statements (usually having a .sql suffix, but not necessarily so) and CSV files (comma-separated values, although the separator is not necessarily a comma) directly.
The import feature can be accessed from several panels:
- The Import menu available from the homepage, the Database view, or the Table view
- The Import files menu offered inside the Query window
In this article, by Marc Delisle, author of Mastering phpMyAdmin 3.3.x for Effective MySQL Management, we will learn how to import data that we have exported for backup or transfer purposes. Exported data may also come from authors of other applications, and could contain the whole foundation structure of these application along with some sample data.
The current phpMyAdmin version (3.3) can import:
- Files containing MySQL statements (usually having a .sql suffx, but not necessarily so)
- CSV files (comma-separated values, although the separator is not necessaria comma); these files can be imported by phpMyAdmin itself or via the MySQL LOAD DATA INFILE statement, which enables the MySQL Server to handle the data directly rather than having phpMyAdmin parse it frst
- Open Document Spreadsheet files
- Excel files (from versions 97 to 2007)
- XML files (generated by phpMyAdmin)
The binary feld upload can be said to belong to the import family. Future versions might be able to import files in more formats.
Importing and uploading are synonyms in this context.Read Importing Structure and Data in phpMyAdmin 3.3.x for Effective MySQL Management in full

Redis is one of the fastest data stores in the market and is being used by many giants in the web industry. This article by Arun Chinnachamy, the author of the book Instant Redis Optimization How-to, defines all the options available in Redis to enable data persistence. You can choose the options based on the data durability you prefer.
Persistence is important and is one of the critical features for any database. The expectation from any data store is to have no data loss on server failure and have a fully durable copy of the data in the disk. Almost every NoSQL database has trouble with this, and Redis is no exception.Read Implementing persistence in Redis (Intermediate) in full
