The Trim Edit Window

One of the best-designed features of Final Cut Pro is the Trim Edit window.

Trimming is the act of fine-tuning your edit points down to an exact frame. The Razor Blade is not as useful for the purpose, because it takes longer to make precision edits. For example, you can make small trims one frame at a time and immediately review and accept them, or you can further change them very quickly. The Trim Edit window keeps track of these changes as you make them. Furthermore, it gives you a side-by-side comparison of the outgoing clip's last frame and the incoming clip's first frame. This is most important when you're trying to match action between a medium shot and a close-up shot.
