Creating Edit Points Via Timecode

If you need to make an edit that is exact in its length, a very efficient way to do so is to use timecode to designate that exact duration for a clip while in the Browser Window.

Setting A Clip Duration Via Timecode Within The Browser Window

1 From within the Browser window, click on the clip to select it.

2 Select either the In or Out column and type in your desired timecode value into the timecode field. A value placed in the In point column, lets say 3 second, will make an in point three seconds into the clip. That same value placed into the out point column will create an out point 3 seconds into the clip.

If this is your first time trying this method of creating edit points by manipulating timecode values, it is very important to be mindful of the duration of the clip that you are setting ins and outs for. If the clip is 7 seconds and 17 frames long and you type in a timecode value of 8 seconds for your In point, then FCP will set that point at 7 seconds and 16 frames, therefore preventing you from creating a clip with a zero duration. This is known as the Out point inclusive rule.
