Lesson 3. Drag-and-Drop Editing > Copying and Pasting Clips

Copying and Pasting Clips

In the previous exercise, you heard the rowing sound clip under the first video clip. The other video-only rowing clips would also benefit from having this sound effect play under them. To continue the sound effect under all the rowing clips, you could edit the rowing sound clip to the sequence several times. Or you could copy and paste the clip in the sequence multiple times.

Copying and pasting in the Final Cut Pro Timeline is similar to copying and pasting in a word-processing program. First you select a clip. Next you copy it. Then you move the playhead to where you want to paste the clip, and you paste it. You use the same Apple shortcut commands for copy and paste: Cmd-C and Cmd-V.
