Using The Range Selection Tool in Final Cut Pro

We have discussed in great length the application of filters to clips to achieve a unique look, well, the Range Selection Tool opens a door to even more possibilities and flexibility. The Range Selection Tool gives you the opportunity to select only a section of a single clip without the use of through edits, enabling you to appy an effect to a selected portion of a clip and not the entire clip.

1 You can either select the Range Selection Tool from the Tool Pallete or hit the G key three times in succession to activate it.

2 Simply click inside of the clip and drag your selection once the tool is activated. Now you can drag an effect to this selected area and add transitions to soften it.

You can also adjust the selected area that contains the filter: Double-click on the clip and load it into the Browser Window > go to the Filters Tab and drag the filter in the keyframe area to a new location.
