Moving From Tab to Tab in Final Cut Pro

A great addition to your Final Cut Pro workflow is to start using a keyboard shortcut to move from one tab to another. I recently added this to my workflow, and can't believe how often I use it. Becoming efficient at Final Cut Pro is all about little time savers like this one.

Being able to move from the Video tab to the Audio in the Viewer, has become very useful. The ability to move from sequence to sequence in the Timeline is also very useful. The functions are called, Select Previous Tab, & Select Next Tab. The default keyboard commands are shift+command, and one of the bracket keys. I have found this to be useful enough to map to the unmodified keyboard. Since the bracket keys, and the comma and period keys are both mapped to the trim function, I remapped the comma, & period to become the Select Previous & Next Tab functions. When combined with the Toggle Windows (Q) function, you are quickly able to isolate the tab that you need to be working in.
