Final Cut Pro's flexibility allows an editor to work with different styles of editing. You can drag a clip to the Edit Overlay in the Canvas, click an edit button, or use the keyboard shortcuts F9 and F10 to make Insert and Overwrite edits. But there's another editing style that's easy yet extremely powerful at the same time: drag-and-drop editing. This method involves dragging a clip directly to the Timeline to make an edit. Once a clip is in the Timeline, you can select it, move it, or copy and paste it. You can really speed up the editing process since you can do just about anything you need to do to manipulate the clip or sequence using this method. Some editors cut or edit their entire sequence using only drag-and-drop editing.
