This month, the author will show you how to use the Replace Edit tool as well as some cool tricks you can do with Replace Edit when you combine it with other handy tools. FCP will take the frame that the playhead in the Viewer is on and line it up with the location of the playhead in the Timeline. Place your playhead in the middle of the clip you want to slow down in the Timeline. In FCP 7, it's much easier to do a trick. Simply right-click on the clip, and from the pop-up menu that appears, select Change Speed. In the new FCP 7 Change Speed window, type in the new speed of 25%, uncheck the Ripple Sequence box, and click OK. Hit F11 to perform the Replace Edit, which in this setup makes the frame that the author's playhead is on in the Viewer the last frame in the Timeline, and FCP backfills the content appropriately.

At its most basic, a Replace Edit is when we replace a clip that already exists in the Sequence (as viewed in the Timeline window) with a new clip, without disturbing anything else in the Sequence. The new clip fits in the exact same space, on the exact same track, as the original clip. That’s a nice feature to have, but it gets even better: When we combine the Replace Edit tool with other nifty tools, we can come up with some really cool tricks that will help you change out and clean up your edits quickly. Let’s start with a project where we’ve already done our rough edit. We may or may not have gone through and refined the edit points after that (see last month’s Cut Lines on editing workflow for more detail on moving methodically from rough edits to refinements). Upon reviewing what we have so far, we see a clip that fills up a needed space in the Sequence, but it doesn’t have the impact we wanted. Maybe we know of a better clip, now that we’re looking at the Sequence as a whole, that would fill that space with more impact. In the accompanying screens, I’ve placed Markers at the edit points in the Timeline so you can see how the Edit Point locations are unaffected by a Replace Edit. 22 www.eventdv.net event dv TUTORIAL Replace Edit Basics So here’s how you do a quick replace edit. In or Out points are not needed. We’ll work strictly with the playhead positions in the Viewer and Timeline windows. I’ll start by opening the new clip I want to use from the Browser into the Viewer. (Make sure that the patch tab in the Timeline window is set to the proper track.) Then, I’ll place my playhead over the old cli
