|Tutorial: Paste Overwrite Edit in Final Cut Pro X
Paste Overwrite Edit in Final Cut Pro X
by Richard Taylor
When copying and pasting clips in Final Cut Pro X, you have two choices.
If you paste using command V, the clip is always pasted as an insert edit.
The second choice is to paste with option V which pastes the copied clip as a connected or superimposed clip to the primary storyline.
What about pasting as an overwrite edit to the primary storyline? There is no default method or keyboard shortcut to paste as an overwrite. Many times that is exactly what I want to do.
In this tutorial, I am going to show you a workaround to effectively copy and paste as an overwrite edit in Final Cut Pro X.
