Utilizing Timecode To Trim Edits

Rather than searching frame by frame using playback controls or the J, K, L keys in Final Cut Pro, use timecode to move to a specific frame while in the viewer. You would then select which edit tool you wish to use and click the In and Out button to make the change.
