Hi Kevin,

great little tips. It is a bit of a work around though having to option click and move your clip, then hit delete. There is an easier way, you can just select the position tool and do the same without having those extra steps.

cheers,

Darryl

I heard that if you select cmd, then hit the (+) button and then throw your keyboard through your computer, it will also give you the desired effect.

Dear apple, sometimes we want to have some tracks, with nothing underneath it. It should be that simple. Seriously.

I'm not sure we should be calling FCPX an NLE. It's strikes me as a very clever computer recreation of a linear editing system, everything tied to that line of black and code down the middle.

All the best,

Tom

A quicker way of moving a clip up out of the primary storyline so as to leave a gap is to use Cmd/Opt/Up Arrow - that way the movement is also vertically constrained. You could also use the Position tool (P) which would also be quicker.
