Undoing and Redoing Actions

As you begin to edit in Final Cut Pro, rest easy with the knowledge that you can undo
actions you take in your projects, sequences, and clips, including editing clips into
sequences. The Undo command is helpful if you make a change you don’t like, or make
a mistake and want to revert to an earlier version. You can also redo actions that you
have undone.

By default, you can undo 10 of your previous actions before quitting Final Cut Pro. You
can set Final Cut Pro to undo up to 99 actions in the General tab of the User
Preferences window. The more levels of Undo you select, the more memory is needed
to save all of your changes. For more information on modifying the number of changes
to undo, see Volume IV, Chapter 23, “Choosing Settings and Preferences.”

To undo a change, do one of the following:


Press Command-Z.


Choose Edit > Undo.

To redo a change, do one of the following:


Press Shift-Command-Z.


Choose Edit > Redo.
