General Tips on Usage for Final Cut

It is important to note that:

• An imported Photoshop file becomes a sequence in the Final Cut project.

• To import a layered Photoshop file as a single clip, it must be flattened in Photoshop first.

• A transparent background in the PSD file creates a transparent background in the new sequence.

• Layer opacity settings, some layer modes, fill layers, and visibility are preserved upon import.

• When making modifications to a PSD file that's already used in a Final Cut Pro project, do not add or delete layers.

• A great file format is the layered TIFF format. Final Cut Pro will read the file in as a flattened file, however Photoshop will open it as a layered image. This gives you all the flexibility you need to make changes with none of the overhead of a layered file.

• Photoshop's Save for Web command is a great way to save PNG-24 files. This is an easy way to save a flattened file with the transparency data intact.
