Hey guys, EMEEK77, I got a real quick tip here. Somebody emailed me and wants to know something about their Final Cut Express, and it’s about their viewer window which is right here.
Let me load the clip into the viewer. They noticed that the timeline underneath the viewer has this little sprocket holes. They said sometimes it has these sprocket holes and sometimes it doesn’t. Well I’m going to tell you why, it’s easy. When you double click a clip that’s in the timeline, it’ll fall into the viewer and a will have this sprocket holes. This means, you’re working on a clip that is in your timeline and you’re going to affect the movie or editing. But now, if I double click the same clip up here in the movie browser, it will load that clip into the viewer also, but if you noticed there’s no sprocket holes. So, what this means is, I can edit that movie clip and it won’t change my movie I’m editing in the timeline.
So that’s just a real quick tip guys and I hope it helped you out and we’ll see you next time!
