When I do a layoff that has different versionings of the same spot I always wish that I could just highlight the clip that I want to move, type in the timecode that I want it to start at and presto. I find that this is now how it works though. If I do this, it moves the clip by the amount that I type in. Is there a modifier key or shortcut so that FCP does not automatically us +, but rather the exact tc I type? This would make versioning so much quicker and simpler.
I appreciate the quick responses, but I know all of this already. A lot of times if I have like 15 promos and 15 slates, I like to just drag the whole bunch of them into the timeline and then move them to where they need to be...I don't know why I like this. But I would like to then be able to move individual clips (once they are already in the timeline) to a different timecode using the numeric keypad. Any suggestions on how to do this? I is also more usefull for when I do a history tape of the entire project, in which I just copy the contents of a few differnt sequences and put them onto one sequence...then I move things around in whatever order I need them.
