Just cutting my teeth on FCP X. This seems very basic, but I don't see how to do a match frame to my source video or at least view the source timecode of my footage that is already on my timeline. would appreciate any help.

thanks,

mike

The command for match frame is SHIFT+F, which reveals the clip and selection range in the browser.
Also, if you skim over your clip in the timeline with the trim tool selected (instead of the selection tool) you will see the clip timecode. My trick is to hold down T without letting go to temporarily engage the trim tool. Blade and Range tool do the same thing

Check out Richard Taylor's Tips. that's where I discovered the above.

Try the "Clip Skimming"-command under the View menu. Should show you the TC if there is one.

CMD-S turns on clip-skimming as Jari suggests. This way you can "kind-of-solo" any clip any time and also see its timecode.
