fcp_icon.pngThere are a variety of techniques you can use to speed your trimming.  Here's some handy keyboard shortcuts to remember for trimming left and right in Final Cut Pro:

  • V key:  Moves the playhead to the nearest edit point
  • U key:  Toggles between selecting the In point , Out point, or both
  • Comma:  Trims the selected edit point left one frame at a time
  • Period:  Trims the selected edit point right one frame at a time
  • Shift < or Shift >  Trims left or right multiple frames.  By default, this trims in five-frame increments, but the number of frames can be changed in the User Preferences under the Editing Tab
