I am currently working on a documentary in which I need to work off my external hard drive, which is a Western Digital formatted as FAT32. However, when I changed my FCP systems settings so that video capture would occur on my hard drive, it comes up with a message "The selected disk is formatted using FAT32 which has a 4GB file limit. Using it as a scratch disk will lead to unpredictable behavior when using or creating larger files." I'm not sure what this means. Does it mean that each individual video clip I transfer into FCP cannot be larger than 4GB? I am working with about 120GB of footage total, but if they are divided into small clips when logging and transferring, will I have problems?

If anyone has any answers I would really appreciate it, as I'm on a time crunch! Thank you in advance!!
