A Quick Way To Determine If You Have Used a Clip Before in FCP

In a long sequence that you have been working on for days, it is very easy to forget if you have used a certain clip before. One quick way to check and see if that clip already exists in the timeline is to attempt to match a master clip to a clip in your sequence.

1 After your sequence has already been opened into the timline, double click on a clip to open it in the Viewer window, then park the position indicator over the frame you want to check for in.

2 Go to View > Match Frame > Master Clip or simply click on the Matchframe option in the lower left of the Viewer. The position indicator located in the Timeline will jump to the match frame in the sequence and the frame will be shown in the Canvas Window. This is but one way to search a Final Cut Pro timeline for clip.
