Chapter 9. Basic Editing

Chapter 9. Basic Editing

In this chapter, you'll learn not only basic procedures for performing edits in Final Cut Pro, including how to use the seven edit types available, but also the underlying concepts and protocols that govern editing: sequences, three-point editing, and multiple media tracks.

You assemble an edited sequence in the Timeline window, which displays a chronological view of a sequence. All the media elements you've assembled to create a sequence appear in the Timeline as elements that diagram the sequencing and layering of audio and video tracks. As you drag the playhead along the Timeline ruler, the current frame of the sequence updates in the Canvas window. The Canvas window is the viewer you use to play back the edited sequence you've assembled in the Timeline. (A more detailed discussion of Timeline and Canvas window operations appears in Chapter 10, “Editing in the Timeline and the Canvas.”)
