Viewing Overlays

Overlays are icons or text displayed on top of the video when the playhead is parked on a significant frame. Overlays indicate significant points, such as In and Out points, in a clip or sequence. Overlays appear only when the Viewer and Canvas are in Pause mode and are not rendered to output. They are displayed by default. Final Cut Pro displays the following overlays (Figure 5.70):

  • In and Out Points: These icons appear when the playhead is positioned on the In or Out point frame.

  • Start and End of Media: The filmstrip symbol along the left or right side of the video frame indicates the start or end of the video media.

  • Start and End of Edits (not shown): An L shape at the lower left indicates the start of an edit, and a backward L shape at the lower right indicates the end of an edit. These icons appear only in the Canvas.

  • Marker: A marker overlay appears as a translucent box displaying the marker's name and comment text.
