A Quick Way to Solo a SINGLE CLIP in Final Cut Pro Composition

While in the process of editing in Final Cut Pro, you can sometimes have second thoughts about a given clip's purpose or the action that it displays. A quick way to review the clip is to solo it. We have discussed soloing a TRACK before, but this is a single CLIP and this can come in handy if you have video in tracks that overlap the clip.

1 Place the position indicator over the clip in the timeline.

2 Click on the clip in the Timeline to select it.

3 Press Control S or go to Sequence > Solo Selected Item(s).

4 Play the clip by either pressing the space bar or clicking the play button in the Canvas Window. You will now see the selected clip playback and that all overlapping video tracks have been disabled.

Press Control S or go to Sequence > Solo Selected Item(s) to reactivate the other clips in your sequence.
