Sub-frame editing in timeline?
on Nov 5, 2010 at 7:02:04 pm

Hey Guys,

If I take an audio clip into the viewer, I can hold down shift and move through the clip what I could call "subframe".

How do I do this in the timeline?

If I load the clip into the viewer from the timeline, I can do the same and then set a new in-point and it adjusts appropriately in the timeline, but I can't figure out how to move in the timeline with the same "subframe" navigation.

The software won't allow for this. Hey double click, adjust in viewer... it's not that much of a chore... It's the way it's designed to be done.

Thanks for the clarification Jerry, no worries on having to double click...I was just wondering if there was a way...didn't figure there was since we have to work within the structure of "frame-by-frame" editing.

[Jason Brown] "didn't figure there was since we have to work within the structure of "frame-by-frame" editing."

That'd be pretty impossible since there's only 24 or 60 or however you shot, frames per second.

Audio, on the other hand, has 48,000 samples per second give or take. That's a lot more instances than 24 or 60. ;)

Most editors I work with leave the sub frame stuff to us in audio post. DAWs have sample accurate editing. @ 24 frames there are 2,000 edit point in each frame on a DAW so mucking around in FCP is a waste of time. Also the OMF process from FCP will likely place the edit on a frame boundary anyway regardless of what you do.
