Final Cut Studio Warp Speed Workflow #2: Restoring Audio or Video parts of edited clips

Q: I’ve deleted the audio, or video portion of a clip in my Final Cut Pro timeline. But now I want it back. What is the Warp Speed Workflow™ way?

It’s called “Match Frame and Replace.” Click to watch the movie.

    Thanks for the great tip. Does this work if the targeting arrows have disappeared from the timeline? THANKS, again.

    The targeting tabs depend on the clip loaded in the Viewer. So yes, after you press “F”, the tabs will be there.

    Great workflow! what if I wanted to use a soundtrack-sweetend audio track different from the original master clip?

      Match frame only works with the original audio.

    Josh: you just saved my A**!!! thank you so much – what i thought was going to take all day to manually re-attach the audio using the time-code and in & out points; just took me 10 minutes on a 30 minute scene! i don’t often say this.. but…. OMG! life saver…

    Sorry am I missing something? When I press f10 nothing happens. I just get the volume control button showing up?

      You need to set your keyboard shortcuts as detailed in Final Cut Pro Foundations – set them up ato use F1-F12 as function keys.
