Question: why I don't have the "two-ups" when trimming?

Hi everybody,
I am using FCPX 10.3.4 on a MacBook Pro (early 2015) with High Sierra.
Editing Preference are set to "show detailed trimming feedback", when I put the T(trim) tool on the line in the middle of two nearby clips, its icon changes as it has to do but into the display I have just one picture not - as it was used to be - two frames in order to better match the last one and the first one of the two bordering clips.


I have searched on line and in this community, to no avail.


Any idea?


Thank you in advance for your help,
Nico

Answer:
Answer:

Those are connected clips. The two up display only works for clips in a storyline, either primary or secondary. You can combine your connected clips into a secondary storyline and then use the trim tools with two-up.

Hi Tom,
First of all, thank you for your reply. I did trashed my prefs, to no avail.


This is what I want to do (and what used to do until a few days ago!):


Final Cut Pro X: Show detailed trimming feedback

I want to put the trim in the middle of two nearby clips and do a more accurate trimming watching both frames (the last one of the first clip and the first frame of the second clip, given first and second as their position on the time line).My prefs are set as apple say they should be.

Here are two screen shots as per your request:User uploaded file

Please note that as a screen shot, FCPX display looks black and the trimming cursor is missed, anyway you can clearly see that in the display there is just one pic not two as it should be (the "two up" as Apple calls it)p,


Thank you for your help,
Nico
