Q. What is the Security-scoped Bookmark(SSB)? And why I add the directory path?

A. Apple designated to create the Sandbox.app to developer. This is for the security to safe the outside of the App. Developer must need to use a decode/encode a SSB, if access the media files from source code without of the user interaction.
You know the video editing is use a lot of media files. And this media files is in the a lot of directory area. So Apple created SSB to access the media files in safety for the App developer. But some fcpxml files is not recoded SSB. So Reference X is must to decode SSB for user. And it must need specify a directory to the media file. So Reference X is add the directory path in Preference window by user.
