Why does certain clips get attached other clips?

Hi!

Something that really bothers me is when certain clips get attached to other clips.
For example when I want to move around the audio file the clip above gets attached and moves with it. How so? And how do I disable it?

Thank you very much!

/Philip

OPT+CMD+click on the connected clip or the grey border of a connected storyline to change the connection point. See this article under "Adjust the connection point of a connected clip": https://support.apple.com/guide/final-cut-pro/connect-clips-ver7a77ef9e/mac

Everything is attached to the spine, the primary storyline. If you want to move some audio that's in the primary and clips are attached and you want them to stay put you can hold the tilde key to temporarily override clip connections.

The bigger question should possibly be if your audio is your spine or not. Generally it would be the clips that control the timing of your piece. The soundbites, the VO, on camera host. Stuff that generally if you were to move it, you would want the connected clips to also move with it because they are connected to the very relevant spot in the vo, soundbite, etc. that they should appear and be synced with. Obviously lots of projects don't work out this way, but that's the idea it's based on.

Thank you very much for your response! However, How do I find the Tilde key? I have a macbook pro 13'' (2019). I cant find it? :/

I don't have a 2019 MBP, but on my 13" MPB the tilde key is the left-most key on the second row from the top - just below the ESC key and just above the TAB key.
