Are there big differences in trimming between Avid and Final Cut Pro? LA-based editor Josh Beal compares the two NLEs.
Avid users levy many points of criticism against Final Cut, but one of the most elementary might be trimming in the timeline. Avid is very formidable on this front, but Final Cut’s simplicity and its magnetic timeline are unique strengths of their own.

In response to some of the questions regarding trimming, Josh has published another video which shows dynamic JKL trimming in Avid.
