zoom_buttons.gifFinal Cut Pro 7 has some terrific new shortcuts making editing life easier.  Today we'll look at one that may have gone unnoticed, the Zoom In/Out On Playhead In Timeline Buttons.  If you go to the Tools Menu > Button List (or Option+J) and type Playhead into the search bar you will see the two new navigation buttons Zoom In and Zoom Out on Playhead In Timeline Buttons. 

button_list_zoom.gifTake both of those buttons and drag them down into your Button Bar above the Timeline.

zoom_in_buttons.gifThese two new shortcuts are really useful when you need to zoom to a particular section of your Timeline.  The cool thing is, if I wanted to zoom in on a clip in the Timeline, and I click on this button that says Zoom In On Playhead in Timeline, it keeps the playhead centered, so as you're zooming, notice how the playhead stays centered in the Timeline.  This feature helps the problem that when you have a clip selected and you normally zoom in, it actually zooms to the thing that's selected, which can be really annoying.  But with these buttons, it doesn't matter what is selected, it still zooms on the playhead.
