Join Frank Rohmer for an in-depth discussion in this video Insert editing and trimming, part of Photography Video Workflow: Final Cut Pro + Canon 5D Mark II.
Let's talk about a few practical editing techniques that you would normally get…to once your rough cut is done. Now in the previous lesson, I had asked you to…create your rough cut with all the clips down on the sequence ending in black…and of course, starting with black to just get the clips down on the sequence…that you want to use.…The next step would be to preview your movie. So you will want to take the play…head and drag it by just clicking on the top part, drag it to the very…beginning or push the Home key on your keyboard, now of course, we are not…going to see the black, but then you push Play.…
Now we haven't rendered yet so you will see black but then the first clip…appears and then the second clip appears, so on and so forth; what you are…probably going to discover is you either have clips in the sequence that you…don't want, or there are clips that you want to add to your sequence. Now we…have already covered how to get rid of clips, how to delete clips. Let me show…you how to add clips and then we are also going to talk about trimming the clips as well.…
