Consolidate your Final Cut Pro X projects simply and quickly.

Use Worx4 X to prepare projects to be archived or sent to another workstation or facility. Any application that can read an FCP X v1.6 or 1.7 XML should be able to open the new consolidated project.

Worx4 X is a new application for users of Apple FCP X, which solves the problem of needing to consolidate, and trim media used in one or more Projects.
Worx4 X takes an FCP X XML that contains a single Project. It finds all the media references, adds handles, joins any overlapping references and then copies just the used portions to a new folder. Finally it writes the XML back out, but having adjusted the media references to point to the new trimmed media, and all the start times of the references to reflect the new trimmed lengths of the media.

WAV or AIFF files will not be trimmed if the preferences are set to 'Copy audio files without losing metadata'. Please set this option on first installation.

Limitations of V1.0
The first version of Worx4 X can trim the vast majority of routine Final Cut Pro X projects. It cannot trim everything that FCP X can create in a project.
> Worx4 X will not currently trim either MXF, M4A(AAC), AC3, CAF or mp3 media files, the whole file will be copied.
> QuickTime reference files will not be trimmed, the reference files are copied to a new directory, but will still reference QuickTime files in their original location, which will not have been trimmed and would potentially go off line if the new project is moved to a different workstation. We recommend you do not use Worx4 X on projects that use QuickTime reference files.
> Compound or MultiCam clips are copied in their entirety, media file which are longer than these clips will be trimmed to the length of the original Compound or MultiCam clip. However, breaking apart Compound clips will allow the media to be trimmed to that used in the timeline.
> Sync clips that contain a video clip and one or more audio clips, which entirely cover the used portion in the timeline will be trimmed, Sync clips that do not meet these criteria will be copied in their entirety. Breaking apart such Sync clips will allow the media to be trimmed.

Fulfills a great need. Simply works!

By the time I have finished a project I have a million files all over my source drive, desktop and a myriad of other places. Half of the files are not used in the project but I would love to be able to archive the project and make sure that all of the files are in one place and I’m not storing a bunch of files that weren’t in the project. Plus many 2 or 3 hour long clips only have small snippets that are within the project. This app fixes all of that.

Just select the timeline (project) and export it out and the app just pulls over ONLY the stuff you used and bundles it all up into a neat little folder that is a fraction of what an entire project or library would be. Great job guys! Works as advertised :)

Just started experimenting with this and, although still a work in progress, find it very helpful. Very easy to use. I’m working on a project with many types of media at different frame rates and 99% of it works great. Had to adjust a few clips and relink a few others but it still helps greatly in reducing your media storage size. Took my demo reel project from 450GB to 35GB in only a few minutes. Once a few bugs are worked out this will be a very useful app for our studio.

Thanks for your review! We are pleased you are finding Worx4 X helpful and easy to use! We hope you keep enjoying Worx4 X!!

Still can’t get it to work


Exporting was fine but when trying to use the XML exported from the software, it was missing all the files on the timeline and would not let me re-link. Posted issue on forum and not resolved yet. Somewhat of a slow process. Emailed support and they told me to “post the issue on the forum"

Sorry to hear you are unhappy with Worx4 X. We only offer support over the forum rather than by email but our support team will normally reply very quickly - I'm sorry your issue hadn't been resolved at the time that you made this review. I hope this issue has been resolved now and you are happier with Worx4 X.
