CCP Episode 005: Navigating the Timeline

Cut | Color | Post Episode 005: Navigating the Timeline. In this episode of CCP I cover how to navigate the timeline in Color. I look at how to zoom in/out, how to scrub, how to move your timeline with your mouse and how to edit your tracks of video inside of Color. And remember, while Color does have some editing tools (and we'll look at those), it's best to leave editing to Final Cut Pro and color grading to Color. Colors editing tools are very minimalistic.
