Final Cut Duration

When editing clips, sometimes it's helpful to know what the length of a clip is. This information is presented in the info panel of the clip - along with other useful information.

Getting the duration of a Clip

  • Select a Clip.
  • Type in Command - Option - 4 to open the inspector - select the ‘Info Inspector' icon
  • You'll see the ‘Duration' as one of the fields on the left.

You can't change the value here, but you can in the timeline.
