Dynamically Resizing the Interface
Editing is a dynamic process. Sometimes you want more Timeline room to add tracks, and a few edits later you may need a larger Canvas to screen an effect, or perhaps a larger Browser to organize your project clips. With Final Cut Pro, you can choose a preset window layout and then change it dynamically.
To Dynamically Resize the Interface Windows
- Move your pointer over a horizontal or vertical window boundary.
- When the pointer becomes a double arrow tool, drag the window boundary up and down, or left and right.
To Dynamically Resize the Timeline Tracks
- Move the pointer over an audio or video Timeline track boundary line.
- Drag the track line up or down to increase or decrease the track height.
- To set all the tracks to the same height, hold down Shift as you drag.
- To set just the video or just the audio tracks to the same height, hold down Option as you drag.
