Performing a Slip Edit in FCP

Application: Apple Final Cut Pro

Topic: Basic Skills

You’ve just completed building your timeline, but something doesn’t look quite right. The action in one of the clips seems to be a little off. Perhaps you didn’t let the athlete follow through with her tennis stroke or maybe the actor didn’t fully exit the screen before you cut-away. You’re not looking to make the clip longer or shorter, you just need to modify the action within that clip. This is the perfect time to perform a slip edit, assuming that you captured enough media for that scene to make the adjustment.
