In this Final Cut tutorial, Richard Harrington performs a quick placeholder effect in Final Cut Pro. Many times you will need this technique so you can figure out what shots you want to use and if it is going to be feasable to accomplish what you think is in the timeline. Richard starts by performing a chroma key on a video clip to place another clip on a TV screen.
