FCPX Clip Auditions. Final Cut Pro 10.3 Tutorial Series, part eight, Clip Auditions. This is a complete A to Z tutorial for Final Cut Pro X. This is part eight of the series. When you have more than one clip that could be used in a certain part of the video, you can edit a clip into your storyline, watch it, find the second clip, replace edit it in, review it, and so on. FCPX has an awesome time saving feature for this scenario, called clip auditions. You select all your clips you wanna try, and create an audition clip. Then, you drop it into your storyline, where you can easily cycle through all the clips with keyboard arrows and select your favourite. I’ll also discuss three different types of markers you can drop into your timeline, normal markers, to do markers and chapter makers, and when to use each type. And, towards the end of the video, I’ll teach you three more ways to trim your clips, including, “Top the Head”, “Trim the Tail”, and “Trim to Selection”. This will also be the first time we use the Range Tool. If you haven’t seen them yet, part one was about importing media. Part two is all about tagging and organizing media. Part three was making a rough cut, and part four was adding B-roll. In part five, background music and sound effects were added. Part six is about exporting video to your mac and sharing on YouTube. Part seven, is about going back and improving your video based on feedback you received. Make sure you go back and watch them. New videos coming every week, so please subscribe so you don’t miss them. If you enjoy this video please like below and feel free to leave any questions in comments. I’ll do my best to answer them. Thanks for watching!
