15. Specialized Workflows

Final Cut Pro includes features that speed up or simplify various parts of the post-production workflow. These features assist you when editing a multiple-camera event (multiclips), working with an off-site producer (iChat Theater preview), crafting a long-format show (markers and subclips), or utilizing the power of other Final Cut Studio applications (round-tripping).


You can create multiclips within Final Cut Pro to work with source footage from multiple cameras recording the same event or even when one camera records multiple takes of a repeat performance. Event scenarios that benefit from using multiclips include multicamera recordings of music concerts, sporting events, or dramatic presentations.
