Anyway of editing to a audio visual display in the timeline?
on May 10, 2011 at 3:28:19 pm

Hi,

This has bugged me for a while now. Used to pulling in a music file clip into the timetime to edit as editing in the viewer doesn't then allow you to drag and drop the clip into the timeline. As far as I have been able to figure out.

However, editing in the timeline doesn't allow me to edit using the nice large audio visual display in the viewer. I know I can add this type of function directly to the clip in the timeline, but it's not the same.

Any ideas?

Double Click the file in the browser.
Make your in/out points.
Grab the Hand icon to drag into Sequence.

Are you saying you need a large waveform display for editing the audio? You have 2 options-

1) Modify the appearance of the timeline. You can shrink the video tracks by dragging the horizontal double bar that separates the video and audio tracks. Drag it up to expose more room in the audio tracks pane. Then move your cursor to the line that separates the audio tracks from each other on the left side by the track selection buttons. Look for the cursor to change to the double bar/double arrow icon, and you can click and drag to resize the audio tracks as needed. Then turn on audio waveforms in the timeline options popup button( little right pointy triangle next to the track scale buttons). I have a window preset that I use for audio work.

2) Edit in soundtrack. Done.

Hope this helps.

Matt

Thanks Matt.

I also just discovered that if you set an 'in' point, although you cannot drag the media to the timeline in the same way as you can a visual clip, you can drag the clip from the browser and it will keep the 'in' point.

Happy days.

Olly,

You absolutely can drag audio clips with in and out points from the viewer to the timeline. Look up at the top of the viewer at the little hand over the arrow, grab it and drag that to the timeline.

BTW, that same little icon is available with many filters throughout FCP, including the 3-way CC filter, and it allows you to quickly drag and drop filters to other clips as well.

I have a friend who's constantly urging me to lose the hand on the chin. Maybe the whole "thinking man," motif needs to go?
