Re: VU duration limitation? by Iain Anderson 5 years ago In the top left and right corners of the Viewer (even in FCP 6) there are timecode fields. The one in the top left is the Duration field, and that's the one you should change.

Re: Colour correcting flesh tones quickly by Iain Anderson 6 years ago In the keyboard customisation window, you can assign a key to a command to copy the colour correction from one clip back, two clips back, or three clips back. Could be handy to avoid copy pasting. I h

Re: How best to use old media in FCPX by Iain Anderson 6 years ago One positive thing: freshly ingested DV tapes recognize and display the time and date they were shot, not just ingested. Fantastic to see my ancient tapes ripping in with dates from 1999.
