Chapter Five. Basic Editing > Building Sequences

Building Sequences

Assembling clips into sequences is the most primal act of editing—and Final Cut Pro provides nearly 20 ways to do it. While this might seem overwhelming, once you understand when to use each method (and which ones you can forget altogether), this level of versatility will prove invaluable.

Final Cut Pro is a source/record editor. Clips to be edited are “loaded” into the Viewer the way traditional tapes were loaded into a source deck to be played back. Then, bit by bit, sections of the clips are copied from the Viewer to the Canvas (Final Cut Pro's version of the record deck).
