Chapter 6. Editing in Final Cut Pro > Performing Split Edits

Performing Split Edits

A split edit sets different In and Out points for video and audio in a single clip. Split edits are commonly used in cutting synchronized dialogue scenes. You can mark a split edit before you insert a clip into a sequence for the first time (as shown here), but a common split edit approach to a dialogue sequence might start by making straight cuts of both video and audio tracks based on the rhythm of the dialogue and then going back and using the Roll tool to adjust the edit points on the video track only.

Another approach is to include only video or only audio in your edit by targeting only the video or audio track in the Timeline.
