Navigating in the Timeline

Many of the tasks described here can be accomplished with the help of keyboard shortcuts. Final Cut Express 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 Appendix B. 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

  • You can use the playhead’s locator line to help identify the exact timecode location of an item way down at the bottom of the Timeline window. Set the playhead’s locator line on the point you want to identify, and the Current Timecode display will give you its exact timecode location.
