There're some online tutorials that have materials organised into 2 folders: Final Cut Projects and Final Cut Events, if they're in 'Movies'.

Their videos show that older version of FCP seems to recognise these folders by default, and can browse projects and events in these folders directly.

older version of FCP can browse file system directly

I'm using FCPX 10.5, and I can't find out how to import those projects and events into a new library.

If you click the dropdown in your library, you will see a folder named "Smart Collections" under that, you'll see Projects. Any and all Events will be under your Library hierarchy, these folders will be created automatically. Screenshot of FCPX Library Hierarchy
