Practical Emogis For Editors


There was once a lot of hoopla about using emojis in naming things inside of FCPX’s Browser panes. I saw lots of cute examples, but then it faded, nothing very practical was shown, in my personal experience. I’ve been producing an educational show about dogs, which has tons and tons of media that I need to sort through weekly for each episode. I’ve learned to use emojis in a way that is practical and allows me visual identification immediately. I’m getting older and my eyes are not what they used to be. FCPX’s text set at medium works fine, but I still have two strain on occasion. And setting its text to large is way too big. Since FCPX doesn’t let me choose it’s GUI text size myself, emojis let me identify what I need, or need to avoid, immediately.
