So how close are the trimming modes between FCP7 and FCPX? In this tutorial all the major trimming methods are examined in both versions of Final Cut Pro.
We like tutorials that are clear, short and get right to the point. Here Ashley Kennedy takes us on a seven minute tour of trimming by performing ripples, rolls, slips and slides.
"The way in which you perform ripples, rolls, slips and slides has changed from Final Cut Pro 7 to Final Cut Pro X. Rather than needing to use four separate tools—each of which performs the techniques in isolation—you instead use only two separate tools. And depending on how you use these tools, you can easily perform each of the four maneuvers of ripple, roll, slip and slide."
