Using Timecode To Move Clips in FCP

In addition to being able to rearrange clips in Final Cut Pro by dragging and pressing a modifier key, you can also rearrange clips in a sequence by entering a timecode value.

1 Within the Timeline, choose the clips that you wish to move.

2 Enter a timecode value representing the postion where you want the clip(s) to be moved. For example if you want the clip to move forward 15 frames type 15. If you want the clip to move backward 15 frames type -15. It will seem akward at first, because when you start typing it is into thin air, but when you enter the numerical value, your typing will appear above the timeline sequence.

3 Press return after you have entered a value.

This method will work only if you have gaps before or after the clips you have selected, depending on which direction you will be moving them. You will receive a Clip Collision message if the clips you are moving are already nestled against other clips.
