Chapter 6. Editing in Final Cut Pro > Locating a Match Frame

Locating a Match Frame

The Match Frame command opens a copy of the source clip for the frame at the playhead position on the target track. This is a convenient way to locate the source video for a clip.

To find a particular frame of video in a clip in the sequence:

1.
In the Canvas or Timeline, park the playhead on the frame for which you want to locate the source clip (Figure 6.79).

Figure 6.79. Park the Canvas playhead on the frame that you want to match in the source clip.


2.
Set the target track to the track that contains the desired frame (Figure 6.80).

Figure 6.80. In the Timeline, make the selected clip's track the target track. The target track icon is highlighted in yellow.


3.
Click the Match Frame button in the Canvas (Figure 6.81); or press F.

Figure 6.81. Click the Match Frame button in the Canvas.


The source clip opens in the Viewer with the In and Out points set. The current frame in the Viewer matches the current frame on the target track in the Canvas (Figure 6.82).

Figure 6.82. The source clip that matches the sequence clip opens in the Viewer. The frame displayed in the Viewer matches the current frame displayed in the target track in the Canvas.
