    Try “lifting” the clip to a secondary storyline, putting it above the main storyline, retime, trim, replace.

    Best,

    Yeah, that’s how I do it was well but it’s quite a lot of extra work. It’s just a shame (and quite ironic) that they finally addressed this long-standing problem in FCP7 and then forgot to implement something similar here!

    I was also looking for this, I hope it doesn’t take them another 7 versions with this interface before they re-implement. Before FCP7, the way I had always done it was through temporal keyframing. Am I correct that we cannot keyframe timing in this current iteration? I haven’t found a way in program and a quick forum search looks like we only have the simple ramp function…

    Sadly I’d say you are correct at this stage, although to be fair they probably think they’ve given you enough tools to kinda do the job.

    Only they kinda haven’t, sorry!
