There is a ton of metadata that Final Cut Pro tracks for each audio or video clip — all deeply hidden in the Info Inspector. Here’s how to unlock it.

  • Open the Info Inspector and scroll down to the bottom.
  • There, on the left, you’ll find a menu labeled Basic.
  • Click it and eleven different metadata displays are already configured. The one with the most data is Extended.
  • Select different options to see what they contain.
  • To configure your own metadata menu, select Edit Metadata View.
