There is an easy way to turn the visibility off on all but one track, or lock all tracks but one, or even isolate a single auto select. Any of these actions can be performed by holding down everyones favorite Final Cut Pro key, the option key. By option clicking on the track visibility control, FCP will turn off the visibility of all tracks but the one you selected. By option clicking on a track lock, FCP will lock all but the track you selected. By option clicking on an auto select control, FCP will turn off all but the track you selected.

This process can be reversed by option clicking on the same track again, or option clicking on any track twice. You can also switch to a different solo track by option clicking on a different track. This is a great tool when attempting to cut and paste to different tracks. It is also a great way to start when you need to select a number of tracks less than half of the total number of tracks. This function works separately in video and audio tracks.
