reinphase FCP Manager V1.5
FCP Manager V1.5 is a software tool which helps users organise preference settings in Apple's Final Cut Pro editing suite. The vendor claims its easy-to-use interface allows users to save established preference settings as presets, then immediately revert back to previously known, stable environments if their Final Cut Pro sessions become unstable, saving time in support and productivity. FCP Manager also allows users to configure and save settings for VTR capture offsets, window locations, buttons and shortcuts. In work environments where several users share the same Mac machine and copy of Final Cut Pro, each person can register favourite preference settings without relying on the multi-user feature of Mac OS X. FCP Manager can also be used as a management tool by system administrators responsible for multiple Final Cut Pro installations, integrators, rental houses, educational institutions and content creators.
