: Final Cut Pro 6.0.2 Option / Snapping Workaround
For those of you, like me, frustrated with Final Cut Pro 6.0.2 turning on Snapping when you try to Option+Click a clip, Apple has a workaround. Actually, the FCP team steered me to it. Read this closely:
Ensure Snapping is turned OFF in your timeline.
Hold the Option key as you select and begin to drag either Audio or Video of the clip
As soon as you are dragging the edit point RELEASE the Option key.
Did you read that last part closely? I didn't the first time and it didn't work. So Option Click your clip like normal, start to drag and RELEASE the Option Key. This does work, I just tried it.
So thanks to the Apple team for steering me to that and yes, it is public information, I just never looked.
