Thanks Andy, where can I leave the feedback?

Go to the Final Cut Pro menu inside FCPX. There is a Provide Final Cut Pro Feedback seletion. I use it often to report any strange or unexpected behavior, as well as ask for enhancements.

Thanks a lot for this very helpful tutorial Andy, everyday more I am convinced that fcpx is the future... a question that could be done better, maybe you have a direct channel to fcpx developers:
when you activate the trim tool, in any kind of the trim modes, you have the two reference windows opened, which is a big help. But as you know, instead of dragging with the mouse/pad you can use the shortcuts "," and "." for moving frame by frame, or both with shift (x5 frames).
But sadly when you use these shortcuts you won;t have the two reference windows, which is a petty. They should change that. I work a lot with these shortcuts.

I completely agree. I've sent in my requests to Apple regarding what I'd like to see in the trim tools and that is one of the big ones. You should use the feedback feature in the File menu as well and tell Apple the same thing. They read all that feedback, and the more people who ask for a specific feature, the more likely it will be addressed.

be good to follow this up with a tutorial on trim to start/end and marked selection

also good to show lift and ripple delete in same tutorial

and position tool trim to achieve single sided trim as fcp7

starting to think this is the prefered way to work in keyboard to trim in FCPX as it doesnt do the expanded trim window and keyboard very well

Thanks for that, I've been editing solidly on FCPX for the last couple of months and I learned a couple of things I didn't know from this!

Hawaiki Keyer 3.0 Upgrader Tutorial

After 25 years as an editor, compositor, and VFX artist, frequent Creative COW poster and tutorial author Simon Ubsdell knows what he needs from a keyer -- and knew he wasn't getting good enough results from FCPX or Motion. Discussions in COW forums led him to create the highly regarded Hawaiki Keyer for Mac users using Apple Final Cut Pro X, Apple Motion, and Adobe After Effects and Premiere Pro on Mac as well. Enthusiasm expressed by COW members for its latest release led us to ask Simon for a tour of the even more advanced Hawaiki Keyer 3.0.

Using Apple FCPX for A DocumenTree

Using Apple FCPX for A DocumenTree

After 25 years of working on other people's documentaries, commercials, feature films, filmmaker Michael Angelo's first original project is the inspirational story of the Treeman of Venice Beach, a singular creation of a singular man whose combination of costume, body paint, live foliage, and 10-foot stilts is gently beguiling and deeply inspirational. With over 1000 hours of footage in a crazy number of formats over a period of years, collaboration among a far-flung team of volunteers with varying degrees of expertise (including none at all), A DocumenTree seemed like the ideal project for Michael to jump into Final Cut Pro X. Michael's longtime experience in a variety of disciplines has nevertheless allowed him to come at the issues of media management, metadata, offline-online workflows, and a variety of complex technical issues in some unusual, and, dare we say it, organic ways.

Managing FCPX Media Labs for Maximum Sanity & Minimum Chaos

Managing a shared storage environment for Apple FCPX is one thing. Now add 100+ students who are still learning the rules, and the challenges skyrocket. Fortunately, Andrew Gash's experience at Lakeland Florida's Kathleen High School has given him some great ideas for you that promise to make things as foolproof as possible, maximizing sanity and minimizing chaos. Even if your shared editing environment is in a post house or broadcast environment rather than a school, Andrew's advice is well worth heeding!

Don't Fight the Magnetic Timeline!

One of the biggest "issues" people coming from other NLE's still seem to have with FCP X is how the Timeline works. Magnetism! No Tracks! Weird Snorkel Things! Storylines?! It's Crazytown! If you fall into this category, we have two suggestions for you. 1) Read this article by Creative COW's Charlie Austin. 2) Don't fight the timeline! Even experienced X-ers are going to have fun with this one.
