macbreak studio through edits

Back to what the boys do best and that's digging around in the functionality of FCPX. This week they explore the wonderful world of the through edit.

When is an edit not an edit? Or is a through edit an actual edit at all? In this week's new episode of MacBreak Studio, Steve Martin shows Mark Spencer what a 'through' or 'phantom' edit is and how and when to use one.

So how cool is it being able to delete through edits without having to go to a menu item? A definite timesaver. Also very good tips on when to use through edits in audio. Unfortunately, Apple haven't implemented an audio only crossfade, so you cannot do the same transition trick in audio that Steve performs on the video. (Please fill out the feedback form and ask Apple to do so!)
