Lesson 4

Editing Basics: Building Your Sequence

Now that you’ve got your material into Final Cut Express and cut it up, we’re ready to begin putting it all together. There is no right way to edit a scene or a sequence or even a whole film or video; there are only bad ways, good ways, and better ways. Final Cut Express has a number of different ways, usually three or four, to do most of the editing functions. You can edit directly in the Timeline with the mouse, in the Viewer with buttons or shortcuts, and with various tools from the Tools palette.
