100 Final Cut Pro X Questions Answered

Editblog on PVC by Scott Simmons

These are questions asked before, during and after recent FCPX webinar image

Recently I hosted a Final Cut Pro X Hands On Tour webinar for FilmmakingWebinars.com. It was a great event with 90 minutes of FCPX for over 800 people attending. (An archive of that can be purchased btw). People often ask questions before, during and after the webinar. Here’s 101 of them that were asked, answered to the best of my knowledge.

There were a ton of questions after this webinar ended. If your questions isn’t answered here I apologize. It took quite a while to get through them all. Some questions overlapped so I placed them together when possible.

I certainly don’t know everything there is to know about FCPX at this point (do we ever know everything about this kind of software?) so I tried to research some answer I didn’t know, either in the application, the documentation or online. If I got an answer wrong, or there’s a better answer out there, then fell free to post in the comments. I hope these are helpful!

1) is there an extend edit command for trimming?
Yes, shift + X will extend the selected edit to the skimmer or playhead. Also get to know Trim Start option + [ and Trim End option + ] as they are very helpful when extending edits as well. read more...
