Final Cut Pro X Append Editing

Learn the basics of using the append edit function in Final Cut Pro X.

An easy way to edit clips to the timeline is using the append edit.

So I’ll select a clip in the event browser and press the append edit button.

This will place the clip in the timeline.

You can also press the E key.

If you already have clips in the timeline area, the append edit function will always add the clip to the last clip in your project.

This time I’ll press the E key to append my clip to the end of this project.

And that’s really the whole point about using the append tool, it’s a quick way to add clips to the end of your project.

Another great way to use the append function is to quickly create a montage of clips.

You can select multiple clips in the event Browser by holding down the command key each time you select clip.

Final Cut Pro X will remember the order of how you selected them.

Then press the E key.

And there you go! 

All your clips are added to the project in the order you selected them.

Then, if the select tool is active you can re-arrange your clips within your project by dragging a clip to its new location.

Now that you have some clips in your project, you’ll notice the viewer window will display the clips that you have in your timeline.

As of Final Cut Pro 10.0.6 you can now have a separate Event Viewer that will only display clips within your Event Browser window.

Navigate to the Window menu and choose Show Event Viewer.

You may want to enable this extra Viewer if you are used to traditional Source-Record windows within other non linear editing systems.

Okay, that’s it, you should now have a good understanding of how the append edit tool works.
