Using the New Precision Inline Editor - Final Cut Pro X

Check out Bas Rutten's Liver Shot on MMA Surge: The Precision Inline Editor is a new feature in Final Cut Pro X that allows you to make the transitions or graphics as close as possible to exactly what you want regarding where they are on the Timeline. This applies to working with both clips and graphics as well. A good example of this feature can be applied to a transition that you may have placed on a clip. To make changes, right-click on the transition in the Timeline and choose Show Precision Editor from the options menu that appears. A new "track" will appear in the Timeline below the original clips. On this "track" you can choose to expand or contract the transition, move it around or get rid of it. The Magnetic Timeline featured in Final Cut Pro X improves on traditional ways of trimming, including ripple, roll, slip and slide edits. If you need more control or want to make additional changes, double-click on an edit to open the Precision Editor and make trims directly in the timeline.? You can also expand your view of the edit point so you can see both used and unused portions of your clips. Then, skim entire clips and adjust edit points with a single click.?Making edits to a clip right in the timeline, viewing the entire source clip and making quick changes without having to leave what you're currently doing is all possible with this editor.
