Join Abba Shapiro for an in-depth discussion in this video Preferences and settings, part of Migrating from Final Cut Pro 7 to Final Cut Pro X (2011).
Before we get started editing let's take a look at the new simplified…preferences in Final Cut Pro X. Our goal here is to cover some of the major…settings and make Final Cut Pro X work a little bit more like Final Cut Pro 7.…If you click on the Final Cut Pro pulldown menu you'll see Preferences are…located just where they were in Final Cut Pro 7.…But you don't have as many to choose from.…The keyboard shortcut if you'll be going to the Preference menu by the way is…Command+Comma, just like with most other Apple applications.…
Notice how simple the preferences are.…There are three basic areas for preferences: Editing, Playback and Import.…Let's take a look at the key ones you need to change to make Final Cut Pro X…work how you would expect it to work like Final Cut Pro 7.…The first one you should change is under Timeline to say Show detailed trimming feedback.…With this unchecked, when you do a slip, a slide, a ripple or a roll you won't…see the 2-up display that you're used to seeing.…So go ahead and turn that on.…
