Join Diana Weynand for an in-depth discussion in this video Fine-tuning the edits in a project, part of Effective Storytelling with Final Cut Pro X v10.0.9.
When you insert interview clips into your primary storyline, you may end up…with some jarring cuts, and that's because sometimes the audio portion of these…clips may be important to your story, but they may not fit exactly the way you…want them to.…So your job as an editor is to sell the cut.…In the trade, that simply means you have to make the edit point work as…naturally as possible.…No worries, it's a good time to fiddle with the clip placement, adjust volume…and use the old film style adjustments, L-cut and J-cut.…Since there are already markers in this project, let's use them to go directly…to the places where we want to make changes, and we can do that by opening up the…Timeline Index, clicking Tags, and then clicking the To Do markers, let's click…the first To Do marker.…
