Final Cut Pro 6 Essential Editing: Open Format

Open formats and sides to a clip in FCP By Larry Jordan

Starting with his system for getting organized and ending with final output, Apple Certified Trainer Larry Jordan covers all the details of creating and editing with Final Cut Pro 6 Essential Editing. He provides an in-depth overview of the application and its interface, and demonstrates how to plan, create, edit, and export professional digital video projects.

An open format timeline is a new feature in Final Cut Pro 6 that allows for the use of different formats of video.

The first clip in the timeline sets the format for all of the other video clips. If the first video in the sequence is standard DV and you place 720p HD clips into the timeline, the clips will be scaled and adjusted so that the formats match to the first clip.
