Chapter 7. Using the Timeline and the Canvas > Navigating in the Timeline

Navigating in the Timeline

Many of the tasks described here can be accomplished with the help of keyboard shortcuts. Final Cut Pro has an army of key commands; many professional editors prefer a keyboard-intensive working style. This section demonstrates some other ways to approach the Timeline interface because, frankly, keystrokes don't make good illustrations. Check out the keyboard shortcuts in the appendix. Before you flip to the back of the book, though, consider the alternatives in this section. You keyboard diehards might find something here you actually like.

Tip

  • Use the “gear-down dragging” option to make precision adjustments to clips, levels, or edits in the Timeline. Hold down the Command key while dragging an item.
