trim multiple clips
on Oct 25, 2011 at 8:55:00 pm

I am new to FCP after many years of linear editing, then using a Casablanca Avio. Anyway... after capturing footage from my camera, all the individual scenes (about 50 of them) were broken into clips. Now I'd like to put in 1/2 second dissolves between each of the clips. I know this is easily done in one fell swoop in iMovie, but can it be done in FCP? Do I first have to trim each and every clip by 15 frames at the beginning and end of each clip, and is there a way to do that all at once or quickly?

If your clips do not have handles, you will have to do them manually one by one.

One easy way to do this is to use the ripple edit tool (rr). Select each side of your edit (u) and type 15 or -15 and enter.

Once the are trimmed, you can easily apply a cross dissolve between each clip in one move.
