Extending an Edit in Final Cut Pro

The ability to fine tune your FCP project after you have laid down audio and video into a sequence is one of the most important functions of the editing process. The Extend Edit feature is another way for you to extend or contract a clip without using the Roll or Arrow tools.

1 Click on an edit point in your sequence in order to select it.

2 Move the position indicator to the location in the sequence where you wish to extend the clip. Keep in mind that the original captured clip file that you are extending must have enough media to accommodate the extension.

3 Press the E key on the keyboard to extend the clip to where the position locator is parked.
