Quickly Create Instant Replays in Final Cut Pro X

Creating instant replays in Final Cut Pro is now easier than ever with the new automated speed tool.

Although it has always been possible to create instant replay in Final Cut Pro, it required a combination of manually duplicating clips, applying speed filters and then modifying clip speed.  Apple has simplified this process in Final Cut Pro X, with a built in instant replay tool.  This new function is great for sports, news-style or action-heavy programming!

How To Use the FCPX Instant Replay Function

Select a clip or a section of a clip from your FCPX timeline that you’d like to replay.  In this example I’ve selected a section from the middle of one clip.  To select a clip range use the shortcut “R” and highlight a section of a clip (range selection).  For information about using the range selection tool see our post here.

Now, click the clip retiming button in the FCPX tool bar.

Choose “Instant Replay”

When you create an instant replay FCPX will duplicate your selection and automatically add it in the timeline immediately after the original.  All other media behind your “instant replay” will move further down the timeline to make room for it (made possible by FCP’s magnetic timeline).

A retiming bar will now appear above your clip. In this example you will see 3 green bar sections…the first over the original selection, the second over the newly created “instant replay” and the third over the remainder of the original clip.

To adjust the speed of the “instant replay” (the section under the second green bar) drag the bar above it to the right.  The further you drag the bar the more you will slow down the footage.

Expert tip:  In FCPX, the instant replay function is not a default keyboard shortcut (command).  However, this function can be mapped  to a key or shortcut (from the menu bar choose Final Cut Pro > Commands > Customize…)

For some projects, such as sports oriented programming, this new instant replay function could result in significant time savings… a nice addition to FCPX!

See why these interns chose Adobe!

ADOBE, AN INTERNSHIP DESTINATION

University students have many choices when seeking an internship, and students look at different aspects when selecting which companies to apply for. Whether it’s because of a company’s outstanding reputation, company culture or employee benefits, university students choose Adobe for a long list of reasons. Here are a handful…

Dennis, his Dad and sister
Dennis L., student at the University of California, Berkeley
Dennis was attracted to Adobe because it is an established company and he knew that he would be working with motivated people. Over the past year he interviewed with 11 different companies, but felt Adobe stood out at the interview forum where he had the opportunity to meet the team he would ultimately be working with. The interaction and chemistry with the team made Adobe his first choice.

Kate knew exactly what she was going to be hired for and was fully aware of her job responsibilities when she interviewed with Adobe. The role clarity and understanding of how she would be challenged made Adobe an easy choice for her. “When I spoke to the team, I was confident that it was going to be an enriching learning experience that would help me grow professionally,” Kate said.

Ben and his son Remington
Ben B., MBA student at Brigham Young University’s Marriot School of Management
Like other interns, Ben was attracted to Adobe for technical reasons and its business landscape. He was excited about Adobe’s vision of Digital Marketing and Digital Media, as well as its business opportunities.
“How can you pass up an opportunity to participate in a company that’s changing how businesses not only create engaging digital experiences for its customers, but also learn how Adobe helps businesses monetize that digital content,” Ben said. “I’m looking forward to learning how creative content can be measured and to witness the marriage of art and science.”

Miranda K., student at the University of Michigan’s School of Information
Miranda was excited about the opportunity to work for Adobe because she has a passion for technology and design. And her position as a User Experience Design Intern was a perfect fit. In addition to finding the perfect role, Miranda was extremely thankful for Adobe’s relocation assistance which made it painless for her to move from the University of Michigan to Adobe’s Lehi office in Utah. “The relocation assistance program offered to Adobe interns is just one of many benefits that separated Adobe from the other companies I was considering,” Miranda mentioned.
The Adobe team wishes all interns a fantastic summer with tons of learning experiences and opportunities to make an immediate impact.
