Create and Manage Events
In the Web application you can create an Event, assign Keywords, Hide Events or Delete Events. Deleting an Event will delete all associated Keywords and Logs, so be very sure the logging has been transferred to FCP X.
At the heart of Lumberjack System is Universal Time (time of day with time-zone offset included). Getting accurate time on the cameras and audio recorders is important so we've provided a few tips in our How to get Accurate Time page.
Events are created in the Web Logger. Once created Events can be logged in the Web Logger, using the iOS Logger, or in backLogger or noteLogger.
Click on "New Event" to create a new Event. In this window we can name the Event, and assign keywords to the Event.
Note: You will not have any Keywords visible if you have not added Location, Person, Activity and Other Keywords by clicking on "New" at the head of any keyword column. See Manage Keywords.
You can assign the keywords used in another Event (in totality or as a starting point) from the "Use keywords from" pop-up menu.
The Event list can grow very long over time, so you can either Hide the Event, so it won't show in Event lists in any application, or Delete the Event.
IMPORTANT: Deleting the Event will delete any Keywords associated with the Event, and all metadata logs associated with the Event. Before deleting an Event, confirm that the logs have been transferred to a FCP X Library or they will be lost forever.
In the Web application select List to list all Events.
In the List find the Event you wish to hide from selection displays, but keep for future reference, and click on Hide Event.
When the page refreshes, the Event will be grayed out and Hide Event will change to Show Event.
Click on Show Event to return the Event to all selection lists with all Keywords intact.
Once an Event has been hidden, it can be deleted.
IMPORTANT: Deleting the Event will delete all metadata logs associated with the Event. Before deleting an Event, confirm that the logs have been transferred to a FCP X Library or they will be lost forever.
Click the checkbox beside the Event(s) you want to delete.
Click Delete to Delete the selected Events.
