Saving Favorites Keyboard Shortcut in Final Cut Pro

fcp_icon.pngToday's quick Final Cut Pro keyboard shortcut tip is for saving "favorites":  Option+F.  You can save transitions as favorites so that you can quickly use it again in the future.  This comes in handy if you've customized a transition or set a transition to a specific duration.  If you've worked hard to tweak a filter or transition and plan to use it several times in your project, why not save it? 

To save a favorite transition, open up the transition in the Viewer (by double-clicking it), make your changes, and hit Option+F.  Ta-dah, you've now saved your favorite transition in the favorites folder in the Effects Tab automatically.  Pretty easy huh?  It's amazing how many editors overlook this handy little trick.  So now you can save time and increase your efficiency!
