Rough Cuts and Trimming

So what is your favorite method of fine tuning the cuts after you have made the rough cut?

A lot of Avid users use the add edit button and do not use the trim method. What is the equivilent of the add edit in FCP?

What tool do you use the most?

Razor Blade

Slide Tool

Roll Tool

Arrow Tool

Replace Edit

I apply the Keep It Simple Stupid rule. I hate the FCP Trim tool quite honestly.

nice - and what methodology do you use when tuning cuts? Do you add dissolves first and then tune the cuts or vice versa?

I also noticed that you can't trim after you have cross dissolves in place. What a shame.

I put dissolves where they belong as I cut, even in the rough cut.

Sure you can trim all day long with and without transitions on the clips.
