The Best Workflow

There isn't one. There's not a right or wrong way to work with Final Cut Pro. There's your way. As you've already seen, Final Cut Pro offers many different ways to accomplish the same task. For example, you can get source material that is contained in the Browser to your sequence in at least five different ways!

  • Drag the clip directly from the Browser to the sequence in the Timeline window.

  • Drag the clip from the Browser to the Viewer, (optionally) mark In and Out points, drag the clip to the Canvas overlay, and insert or overwrite it to the track of your choice.

  • Drag the clip from the Viewer directly to the Timeline.

  • Double-click the clip in the Browser, (optionally) mark In and Out points, and press one of the F9–F12 keyboard keys to place the clip in your sequence.

  • Press Cmd+4 to make the Browser active. Use the up and down arrow keys in combination with the Enter key to open bins or load clips into the Viewer. (Optionally) create In and Out points. Press Cmd+2 or Cmd+3 to highlight the Canvas or the Timeline. Use the J, K, and L keys to navigate to an In point, and press one of the function keys to place the clip where you want it. This method does not use the mouse at all.
