Have you tried it in iMovie? How comfortable are you with this? Skimming in the browser and skimming in the timeline? I

    Tom, I've gotta say, I have NO idea what you're talking about.  Maybe because the apps are all jumbled together in the new "community"  I'm missing something?

    Tom, I've played and worked with iMovie 11 for a number of months.

     

    Skimming is fine, and doesn't present issues for me.  It is a departure from logging in/out points, but to be honest, not a significant one.

     

    One of the maddening and recurring comments here is that FCPX is a just like iMovie.

     

    To be honest, when iMovie 11 came out, my thoughts were that it would be good if FCP also had some of the new features and workflows that iM11 had. 

     

    But skimming is fine for both previewing clips, selecting in/out points and tagging the clip or portions thereof, etc.

     

    Not an issue for me.

    I thought you were going to ask us to skim the till.

     

    Not comfortable with either.

    Oh.  I guess that's what I've always called "scrubbing."   Although I have no idea why it's called scrubbing.  Nothing gets any cleaner in the process.  I've never even opened up imovie.  Maybe I ought to do so, if only to get a jump on FCPX

    Gads, I've got enough trouble trying to edit with a magic mouse.  Timeline is always flying all over the place.

    Has anyone received any updates to this.  All my projects which are 4 min or less skim fine.  All above that time skim with a 2 second delay.

    Hi I have exactly the same problem - poor skimming through a project and with some kind of relationship to the 4 minute mark. Any project over 4 minutes, the skimming is fine beyond the 4 minute mark, but useless before it. Did you ever find a solution?
