Navigating to In and Out Points

Often, you’ll want to position the playhead at the beginning or end of a specific clip, marker, or edit point in your sequence, in preparation for the next edit. Final Cut Pro makes it easy to jump quickly between all of the edit points in your sequence.

To move the playhead to the next edit point in your sequence
Do one of the following:
  • Choose Mark > Next > Edit (or press Shift-E).

  • In the Canvas, click the Go to Next Edit button.

  • Press the Down Arrow key.

To move the playhead to the previous edit point in your sequence
Do one of the following:
  • Choose Mark > Previous > Edit (or press Option-E).

  • In the Canvas, click the Go to Previous Edit button.

  • Press the Up Arrow key.

You can move the playhead directly to an In or Out point. This can be useful if you need to make a slight adjustment to your In or Out point. Move the playhead to the edit point, then move it by the necessary frames and set the In or Out point again at the correct location.

To move the playhead to the current In point in your sequence
  • Choose Mark > Go To > In Point (or press Shift-I).

To move the playhead to the current Out point in your sequence
Do one of the following:
  • Shift-click the Mark Out button in the Canvas.

  • Choose Mark > Go To > Out Point (or press Shift-O).
