A more advanced take on pro video editing.

Magnetic Timeline 2
Now more than ever, everything just falls into place. Assemble shots with ease as clips “magnetically” close up to eliminate unwanted gaps in the timeline. Similarly, clips move out of the way to avoid clip collisions and sync problems. Automatic color coding makes it easy to identify different types of audio — such as dialogue, music, and effects. And powerful controls in the Timeline Index let you instantly customize the look of your timeline and focus on specific kinds of audio as you edit.
Final Cut Pro offers the industry’s most advanced multicam editing. The 64-bit engine allows you to work natively and in real time with a variety of formats, frame sizes, and frame rates. Create a Multicam Clip by automatically syncing up to 64 angles of video using audio waveforms, or choose custom sync options to precisely align footage or photos based on time of day, timecode, or markers. To adjust a Multicam Clip, double-click to open it in the Angle Editor timeline, which lets you move, sync, trim, add effects, or color grade individual source clips. When it’s time to cut, simply drop the Multicam Clip into your project and click in the customizable Angle Viewer. Or use keyboard shortcuts to seamlessly switch between video and audio on the fly. You can even combine audio channels from multiple cameras with just a click.
Clip Connections keep related clips together. They make it easy to place items such as B-roll, sound effects, and music in the timeline so they all move as one. Or, if you prefer, simply press a modifier key to break the connections between clips and move them independently. Clear visual connections make it easy to hand off a project to another editor or resume editing at a later date.
Cut through timeline clutter with Compound Clips. They’re automatically saved back to the library, making it easy to reuse them in other projects — for example, when designing a unique sound effect with layered audio. And Compound Clips work just like Multicam Clips, so any changes you make instantly ripple across the same Compound Clip in all of your projects.
