To optimize FCP performance, Energy Saver should never put the computer to sleep automatically.
You should not activate FileVault if you want to maximize performance of your system.
It is not recommended you mirror displays through System Preferences when you're working with Final Cut Pro, because it will draw too much power from the graphics card. If you need to mirror a display, you should use an external splitter.
FCP users may need to modify the Exposé and Dashboard shortcuts because they conflict with default FCP commands.
You can prevent Spotlight from indexing specific areas of your system by adding directories to the list under the Privacy tab in the Spotlight preferences pane.
Smart Folders are saved Spotlight searches that update dynamically to create a virtual organization system.
By default, the manuals are stored inside the Final Cut Pro package, which is not indexed by Spotlight. If you copy the files out of the package to an area that is part of the index, you can perform Spotlight searches of the manuals.
The three user accounts typically associated with human users are normal, administrator, and superuser (root).
Standard Unix file permissions are read, write, and execute.
When you're working at the command line, the sudo command lets you work temporarily as superuser (root).
Every process in a Unix system is assigned a unique PID, or process ID.
