Say you’re working on a project and you’re not exactly sold on some of your b-roll. You have a bunch of shots that could work, but don’t really have the time to insert each of them and recut. FCP X offers a quick solution in the audition tool. Simply drag your footage down over your original clip and FCP X will add them to your addition. Click the little spot light on you footage and you’ll be able to test out each of the clips. It’s a pretty handy tool.
