Final Cut Pro 6.0.2 Option / Snapping Workaround

COW Blogs : walter biscardi's Blog : Final Cut Pro 6.0.2 Option / Snapping Workaround

For those of you, like me, frustrated with Final Cut Pro 6.0.2 turning on Snapping when you try to Option+Click a clip, Apple has a workaround. Actually, the FCP team steered me to it. Read this closely:

Ensure Snapping is turned OFF in your timeline.

Hold the Option key as you select and begin to drag either Audio or Video of the clip

As soon as you are dragging the edit point RELEASE the Option key.

 

Did you read that last part closely? I didn't the first time and it didn't work. So Option Click your clip like normal, start to drag and RELEASE the Option Key. This does work, I just tried it.

So thanks to the Apple team for steering me to that and yes, it is public information, I just never looked.

Professional Video Editor, Producer, Creative Director, Director since 1990.

Credits include multiple Emmys, Tellys, Aurora and CableAce Awards.

Creative Director for Georgia-Pacific and GP Studios, Atlanta. Former Owner / Operator of Biscardi Creative Media. The show you knew us best for was "Good Eats" on the Food Network. I developed the HD Post workflow and we also created all the animations for the series.

Favorite pastime is cooking with pizza on the grill one of my specialties. Each Christmas Eve we serve the Feast of the Seven Fishes, a traditional Italian seafood meal with approx. 30 items on the menu.

If I wasn't in video production I would either own a restaurant or a movie theater.
