editor is talented and fast. Navigating around your sequences
is important to be able to quickly and FCP has a number of ways
to help you move in and out of the sequence.
Zoom Tool is one way to zoom in
(keyboard short cut is "z") Holding
the option key with the zoom in tool selected
will zoom out.
easier way is the keyboard combo of the command
+ "+" keys to zoom in
or the command + "-"
keys to zoom out. You can zoom in or out centered
on the playhead if you DO NOT have selected clips.
you see this grey bar, you are looking at each frame...you are
zoomed in pretty close, which can be a big help.
the keyboard key combo of the shift + z
key you can "fit to window" which is helpful when
you want to quickly get to a point of seeing the whole timeline.
