I don’t think there is anyone outside of Apple who knows what all the icons, symbols and alerts in Final Cut Pro X are, much less what they mean. Still, I had some extra time this weekend and decided to put together an illustrated list.
So, here are more than 50 icons and indicators, grouped by the panel in which they appear, with a short description of what they mean.
NOTE: For the most part, I excluded icons which you click to do something; in other words, buttons.
Blue indicates something that is active (turned on), gray is something that is inactive.
An Event with Missing Media
A folder in the Library containing Smart Collections or, in an Event, containing keyword or smart collections; used for organization.
