- Let's step into project 03-08…and take a look at our timeline.…Now, this is the timeline that we created…in an earlier movie, where we actually overwrote everything…down to the primary storyline.…It looks very nice, but it doesn't quite do…what I need it to do.…I want to be able to group a bunch of clips together…so I can either move them as a section…or put a video filter on it…to change the color of the scene to give it a certain mood.…
If I didn't group them together,…I'd have to put that same filter…on every single one of the clips.…And if the producer or my client comes back and says,…"Can you tweak it a little bit?"…I have to find each one and make the same adjustment.…Very time consuming and very frustrating.…By grouping them together,…I can do it all in one fell swoop.…To group a set of clips, you can simply select them…and right-click and say, create new compound clip.…And, as you see, the keyboard shortcut…is option g, as in group.…
Now, it's going to ask you to name this clip,…so let's go ahead and say 03-08 Compound Clips.…
Note: This course was updated to reflect the changes to Final Cut Pro X v. 10.1.x. Although the course was not re-recorded from scratch, we updated each of the movies by adding text overlays to guide you to existing changes. We also updated the exercise files to work with the most current version of the software. Please watch the "Understanding this update and using the exercise files" movie to learn exactly what to expect from this updated course. Working with an earlier version of Final Cut Pro X? Watch Narrative Scene Editing with Final Cut Pro X 10.0.9.
