exact 1 frame / step pulling of a clip
on Oct 4, 2016 at 11:45:50 am

So I am doing some audio editing where I have double clicked on the audio to seperate it so I can fade audio clips together. Now when I want to trim a video clip and I use the mouse to pull one edge of a clip to trim it FCPX jumps a few frames. I am not exactly sure how much but the steps are way too big for my taste. Same when I use the left and right arrow. The steps are too big. Now I already figured out that holding CMD + LEFT/RIGHT is a VERY small and exact step. I like that. Is it possible to also get this when dragging/trimming by draging the edge of a clip.

In be fore: Don't use the mouse. Use the keyboard.
I do that most of the time still I am curious.

Thanks a lot

Drag behavior is influenced by how zoomed in your timeline is.

I've zoomed all the way in to the maximum. Still I get big jumps or steps or whatever you want to call it.

Is snapping/skimming on? Those can influence as well.

Select an edge of your clip with the trim tool and use the period . and , keys to trim or extend one frame at a time .
