Now once you have added a few clips to your project, you'll want to play it back to see how well the clips work together. By the way, the tips I'm planning on sharing here also apply to the Event Browser, not just the Project Browser. You can skim through the clips in your project and then press the Spacebar to begin playing from any point. (Music playing.) Press the Spacebar again to pause playback. To play a project right from the start, use the two buttons at the base of the Project Library.
To watch your project from the beginning in full screen mode, click the Play Project full screen button. (Music playing and crowd noises.) Press the Escape key to exit Full screen mode. You can also watch your video full screen from any point in your project simply by pressing Command+G. (Music playing.) Again press the Escape key to exit Full screen mode.
Okay, so those are the basics and if that's enough for you, watch no further, but if you want even more precise ways to play your video, stay tuned for the following tips. To play one second around the playhead position, press the Left Bracket key. (Music playing.) This is great for checking edits and making sure they look right. To play three seconds around the playhead position, press the Right Bracket key. (Music playing and crowd noises.) To play only a selection of video, drag out the selection and press the Forward Slash key.
(Music playing.) (Female on loudspeaker: 144, 145...) And finally, to play a selected event or project right from the start, press the Backslash key. That's the one above the Return key on US keyboards. (Music playing.) (Male speaker: Hi, Katie.) (Young Girl/Katie: Hi, Daddy.) (Young Girl 2: Put Andrew on Nomo and let's take a picture.) (Female on loudspeaker: 151, 144, 145, 153...) (Music playing.) (Child speaker: Don't do it like that.) (Female speaker: Hey, Aaron, David's son is over there.) (Music playing.) (Man laughing.) (Music playing.) (Female on loudspeaker: 89, 149, 1.2...) (Female speaker 2: It's 6th place, but hey, we'll take it. It's my first prize.) (Little boy: And they're sometimes hiding under bark.) (Little boy: Oh my god!!!) (Laughing.) (Male speaker off camera: That scared you, didn't it?) (Music playing.) (Female speaker 3: Real cowboy here. All right.)
