I'm going to come to the first series of shots, my stair shots that we've been …working on. And I can either right click and choose …New Compound Clip or press Opt + G. Alright, when I do this Final Cut is …going to ask me where I want to store the compound clip in the event library, and I …do want to bring it to the H+ Sport Event. …And I'm just going to call this, Stairs Montage and say OK. …
