Join Abba Shapiro for an in-depth discussion in this video Evaluating shots and performances, part of Narrative Scene Editing with Final Cut Pro X v10.0.9.
Once you've imported all of your media, the next step is to evaluate the shots and the…performances of your actors.…And there's several ways to do this, and I like to do this as efficiently as possible.…Now of course, you could simply skim through each of the scenes and step down and go through…them one at a time just to get a feel for all of these takes.…But one thing I'd like to do is be able to just very quickly look at them all at once.…Now I could stretch this out to make it a little bit longer or switch to the Filmstrip…view, but I actually find the Filmstrip view gets very cluttered, and it's really hard…to see what's going on.…
So I like to keep it in the List view, and this is what I do.…I select all of the clips, Command+A, and I simply bring them down to my timeline, and…I can do that by hitting the E key.…So now all of my footage for this one scene is in my timeline.…I'm going to hit Shift+Z, so you see the entire time line at once.…So there's all my footage, and I can very quickly skim through and get a feel for all of these shots.…
