macbreak studio flexible connections

Another new feature explored in the 10.0.6 FCPX update from Steve Martin and Mark Spencer on this week's MacBreak Studio. This time they look at flexible clip connections.

Clip connections in FCPX is a fantastic feature, but there are some times when you would like to move or slip a clip on the primary storyline without all of the attached clips following it. In this new episode of MacBreak Studio, the regular duo of Steve and Mark show us how to move, slip or trim a clip without causing major reorganisation on the timeline.

A short episode, but a great keyboard command that might save a lot of pain.

Ripple Training have a great $29.99 2 hour long Final Cut Pro X 10.0.6 In Depth tutorial which will expand on this and the other new features which were added in the 10.0.6 update.

If you want to start from scratch and prefer learning from hard copy, their two books on FCPX and Motion are still in print and available from Amazon.
