Final Cut Pro 7: April 2008 Archives

Final Cut Pro allows you to manipulate the rate at which you adjust specific functions with modifier keys. Two good examples of this are using the Option key when using the scroll wheel of the mouse, or when using the scroll whell to adjust sliders in the Motion tab.

When you hold down the option key while using the scroll wheel of the mouse will cause the rate of change to go from 1X for every scroll wheel click to 10X. This is helpful when navigating across a timeline. In the Motion tab of the viewer, if you place the cursor over top of a slider, and scroll the scroll wheel, the rate of change will be 1X for every click of the scroll wheel. The rate of change will increase to 10X when you hold down the Option key.

On the topic of the sliders in the Motion tab, if you hold down the Command (Apple) key while dragging, it will slow the rate of change down considerably. If you don't have a scroll wheel, this is an option for you.
