The New (hidden) Toolbar - Final Cut Pro X

Check out Bas Rutten's Liver Shot on MMA Surge: In this version of Final Cut Pro, the Toolbar is no longer to the right of the Timeline. Instead, it has been consolidated into one button that reveals a drop down menu. From this menu you can choose the following tools: Select: used to select clips and move them around by clicking and dragging on them * Trim: allows you to trim and expand clips in different ways and move around a clip within the in and out points * Position: allows you to move a selected clip over the clips that precede or follow it without expanding the other parts of the clips (instead, it will leave a gap) * Range Selection: allows you to set in and out points on the Timeline itself with the ability to move them around * Blade: splits and separates clips, like a razor blade * Zoom: allows you to zoom in on the Timeline (press and hold Alt/Option while clicking to zoom out) * Hand: allows you to move around the Timeline itself, which is good for navigating the Timeline while zoomed in The new toolbar is basically an expansion of the Select tool in previous versions of the program to make the workspace a little easier to navigate for novice editors.
