Split Edits in Final Cut Pro

In Final Cut Pro it is very likely that you will need to perform a split edit from time to time. Also referred to as J & L cuts due to the shape the edit takes in the timeline. A perfect example of a split cut is when you start to hear the audio of an incoming clip before while the video of the outgoing clip is finishing.
