Organize with Compound Clips - Final Cut Pro X

Check out Bas Rutten's Liver Shot on MMA Surge: Making Compound Clips is like having a Timeline within a Timeline. To do so, select a few clips, choose a command and combine the chosen clips.? You can then double-click that Compound Clip to make it into a Timeline. When you open that Timeline, you can manipulate it and it will stay the same within that Compound Clip and you can add that clip to a Timeline. For example, you may have five or six scenes that you've shot footage for. You can place all of these scenes on separate Timelines so you can manipulate them separately.? To do so, you would create the Compound Clip within the Timeline and then move that Compound Clip into the new Timeline. Select your clips in the Browser (press Shift or Command to select multiple clips). Right-click on the selected clips and choose New Compound Clip from the menu that appears. Name the Compound Clip, choose its properties and click OK when you're done. The Compound Clip will appear in the Browser with a different icon next to it. Double-click on the Compound Clip to make it appear in the Timeline.? You can then manipulate and move them around as you want. No matter what you do to them in the Timeline, they will always be associated together as a Compound Clip. *Do NOT create a Compound Clip from two or more Compound Clips that have already created.
