Timeline Basics - Final Cut Pro X

Check out Bas Rutten's Liver Shot on MMA Surge: The Timeline window is located at the bottom of the Final Cut Pro X edit window. Click on the button that says Create New Project in the Timeline window to add clips. In the dialog box that appears, name your new project and press OK. This will create a Timeline. In order to add a clip to the Timeline, you must choose which part of the clip you want to add. Use your mouse in the top window to figure out where you would like to set the In point.? Press I on your keyboard when you have your mouse cursor set to your desired In point. Press I again when you have your mouse set to the clip's Out point. Click and drag the trimmed clip into the Timeline window when you're ready. Final Cut Pro X is set up to allow you to view the audio waveforms of the clip in the Timeline. If you move your mouse pointer over the waveforms, you'll see a line that you can move up and down to adjust the clip's volume.? You can also press and hold Option/Alt and click on this line to create points from which you can adjust the volume of the clip. With these points, you can make certain parts of the clip louder while other parts are quieter. You also have the ability to separate the audio track from the video. To do so, right click on the clip in the Timeline and choose Detach Audio from the menu that appears. This will make it so you can move the audio separately from the video.
