Analogy: the clip as viewed in the timeline is actually a window, behind which the entire original clip lies.
I want to move the original clip side-to-side behind this window, so that the window's size and position don't change, but it shows a different part of the original clip.
I have imported 3 videos into final cut pro. Each video is, on its own, at least 20 minutes long, but I've cut them all to be 15 minutes, 5 seconds, 5 minutes in order. There are "straight" (the most basic) cuts to transition from one to the next (i.e., nothing fancy).
The second clip, in-between the two other clips, is the right length but I'd like to show a different part of its video. I.e., instead of the 5 seconds it's currently showing, the first 5 seconds of that video (the original video that was imported), I'd like it to show a 5 second clip from the middle of that video.
Is there a way I can do this easily?
In my real project the timeline is full of audio and some other videos so I don't want to stretch, re-cut, delete etc. the middle video.
