The idea that you cannot hide certain events can be an issue, especially if you are working with clients. Say your clients are Pepsi and Coke. You don’t want Coke to see you are working with Pepsi. Now you don’t need to worry about that.
Open up Event Manager X; you don’t even need FCPX running. Once you do, you’ll see a list of events and projects you’ve created. Now, simply just uncheck the events you don’t want seen. Event Manager X even allows you to deselect a whole hard drive. You don’t even need to have all the hard drives mounted; it still allows you to check and uncheck them. Plus, if you need to move any projects or events, Event Manager X has a handy button that allows you to do so.
I find Event Manager X really useful. Right now I don’t have a ton of events, but I’m sure over time I will and I’ll be glad I have this. It does exactly what it’s meant to do – hide and show events and projects. And for $5, it’s definitely worth it. I highly recommend this to anyone, but it’s a must for people that work with clients. Also, for those who have already upgraded to OS X Lion, it’s compatible. This is a 10 out of 10 product in my book! So what are you waiting for? Head over to their website and buy it now!
