Join Abba Shapiro for an in-depth discussion in this video Fine-tuning with the Precision Editor and performing three-point edits, part of Migrating from Final Cut Pro 7 to Final Cut Pro X (2011).
In this next movie, we are going to take a look at the Precision Editor.…We are also going to take J-cuts and L- cuts to the next level and show you how…easy it is to do a three-point edit.…Let's step inside the Precision Editor project.…Now exactly what is the Precision Editor?…Well, I have two clips in my Timeline but I want to see the handles of each of these clips.…Final Cut Pro X makes this real easy.…The first thing I want to do is simply double-click on the edit point.…
If you notice, the edit splits apart and I can actually see the handles beyond…the first clip and before the previous clip.…I could never do this easily in Final Cut Pro 7 where I could scrub across…and if I decided I wanted to change my in- point or my out-point, it was never so easy.…In the Precision Editor, if I wanted to do a roll edit, I can just grab the…first clip and stretch it out and see exactly the media that I'm adding while I…am stretching the edit.…I can also do the same thing with the bottom clip.…
So I could just get the audio to start exactly where I want.…
