Apple Final Cut Pro: Using the Extend tool to improve workflow

Chapter: Editing

Topic: Basic Skills

The Extend tool in Final Cut Pro is often overlooked. As you develop your use of the keyboard short cuts in the Final Cut Studio, this is certainly one to remember. For those of you not familiar with the Extend tool it extends or retracts the end of the clip to the play head. After moving the play head to the new desired duration of the clip, as long as the end of the clip is highlighted, you only need to press the E key to bring the duration of the clip in sync with the play head.
