Every minute counts when you’re editing a large project. Here is my method for flying though a project and editing FAST.

UPDATE: I love doing this tutorials because you guys always show me better ways to do things! As many have stated in the comments, using ‘Command + i’ and ‘Command + o’ and then ‘Delete’ would be much faster than my method. Cheers!

Left/Right Arrows = Move 1 frame
Shift +Left/Right Arrows = Move 10 frames
Command + B = Make a cut
X = Select click in front of playhead
Command + X = delete or “cut” clip

With those simple FCPX keyboard shortcuts, you’ll fly through your edits!
