Editing > Directing the Flow of Audio/Video

Directing the Flow of Audio/Video

The editing that we have done so far has involved editing video and audio at the same time. To produce a professional film one needs to be able to edit video and audio separately. This is easy to achieve with Final Cut Pro and as with many of the editing functions there is more than one way to go about it.

Look to the left of the Timeline and you will notice that where each track is labeled V1 (video 1) and A1 and A2 (audio 1 and 2) there is also a lower-case v1, a1 and a2 symbol. I refer to these as break-off tabs. If you click these tabs you will notice that they break away from the fixed video and audio symbols.

This is a simple Patch facility that enables you to quickly and easily direct the flow of audio and video.
