Inserting Video Only Into The Timeline

Knowing how to properly patch your source controls to the proper destination tracks in Final Cut Pro is essential to the editing process . Just think of it like an old time operating service where you would call the operator and she would physically patch your call through to the desired destination. Well, in Final Cut Pro you can strtegically traget tracks in which to lay down source material.

When you load a clip into the viewer if you look to the left of the timeline there will be a visual representation of the sources related to that clip that will show as either V1, meaning the clip contains video, and an A1 or A2 representing 2 channels of audio. For example, If there is no audio associated with the clip that you have loaded into the viewer, you would only see a video source representation, V1. Only an audio representaion would appear, A1 A2, if the clip only contained audio.

If you have a clip loaded into the viewer that contains both video and audio, but you only wish to lay down the video source into the timeline, click on the V1 and V2 destination controls to ulink the audio source controls from their destination controls. Now, when you position your playhead in the area you wish to lay down your edit and perform either an insert or overwrite edit, you will only be laying down the video source into the timeline.
