Here's a hard one. Replacing gap clip without uthe 'replace' command

I have a gap clip in the middle of my main storyline right..

Now I want to replace this clip with a new clip but I DONT want to use the 'replace from start' command..

Is this even possible?

Ummmm... I'm going to have to ask, what's the issue that you can't use one of the three replace options? Just trying to imagine what you need to accomplish that those commands can't...

I want to replace video only to a main storyline clip. When I use any of the replace options, it will include audio as well in the replacement even if I have 'video only' selected.

So I'm trying to find the easiest workaround, basically.

Fair enough - unless there's something I've missed the best option is one of the replace commands followed by s and delete the detached, unwanted audio.

Mark the outgoing clip in the timeline with 'x'.

Find an in point on the incoming clip with 'I'.

Shift-1 for video only.

D to overwrite

Fcpx still has three point edit rules.

I second that idea, or just let the audio come in and then deselect it in the inspector after the fact. convenient more if you want to quickly do it across a number similar edits.

On that note, is there a paste overwrite? I can paste, paste connected, but no paste overwrite.

Not that I know of.

If you copy/cut a connected clip, it pastes connected.

If you copy/cut a primary clip, it paste inserts (or you can choose to paste connected as you point out).

Right now, you have to paste connected and then "overwrite to primary" (or match frame and overwrite). That can do weird things to audio.
