About the Edit to Tape Window
In most window layouts in Final Cut Pro, the Edit to Tape window appears in the same
location as the Canvas. The Edit to Tape window has three tabs:
Â Video: This tab allows you set tape In and Out points, specify tracks for insert editing,
and perform the edit to tape.
Â Mastering Settings: This tab allows you to adjust settings for elements before and
after your movie, such as black, color bars, a slate, and a countdown.
Â Device Settings: You can choose a device control preset that matches your VTR and a
capture preset that determines how your video is displayed in the Edit to Tape
window. These settings are set automatically whenever you choose an Easy Setup.
