FCP 7 and adding 10 frame slugs or black between each of my mutiple edits
on Sep 11, 2012 at 1:01:23 pm

Hi there all.

I wondered if anyone knew of a quick way in FCP 7 to add 10 frame black/Slug between each of my many edits it is for a showing and for a separate editor.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Kindest regards

Sean

I'd find the point in the timeline where you want to place the 10-frame gap, select all tracks forward, and move them 10 frames. It's too risky to try anything else, in my opinion.

The trouble is i need to add it between every edit...Not just one.
That would be fairly simple...
So do I have to individually add a slug or black or edge forward every edit one by one?
Surely there is an easier way?

If it's between every clip, the chances are good there's no complicated audio in the timeline. You can make a 10-frame solid, use the Go To Next Edit key, then use the Insert Edit feature. It's pretty fast. Make sure you have NOTHING locked, audio or video.

...and the reason there isn't any automatic way to do it: it's not how people normally edit.

Who wants 10-frame chunks of black between clips? That's not editing, that's parsing clips.

LOL! David is right, this is not really what FCP is built to do, but I think I might know a slightly faster method.
Build a 10 frame slug in the viewer. Insert it (F9) into the timeline where you want the first one. Down arrow key to advance to the next edit. F9. Continue till done, or fingers cramp. ;)
As David said, this is a pretty fast process. Should take less time than it took to reply to this post.

So whatcha' want?[/i]

...actually, we both recommended the same method. However, you had the good sense to include the actual keystrokes, which is a fine thing.

Yes the client wanted parsing...between every edit. The reason? No idea it is crazy I agree. But I think he wanted a pause between each shot to gather the energy of it. However thanks Eric that really helps and thankyou to all you replied.
