View the status of shared projects

The Share inspector displays when and where a project or clip was shared. If you share your project or clip to a web destination, you can also use the Share inspector to go to the website where the video was shared, send an email that includes the URL where the video was shared, or remove the video from the sharing site. If you share your project or clip using the Master File destination (or any custom destinations you make based on the Master File destination), you can locate the shared file in the Finder.
