Final Cut Pro Tip #020 – Remove Attributes

Remove Attributes is a quick way to quickly remove multiple attributes to one or more clips in FCP.

To use the Remove Attributes feature simply select the clip or clips that you want to effect. Right click and select Remove Attributes from the contextual menu. The Remove Attributes dialog will appear. Select the attributes that you would like to remove. Be careful as, they may be selected by default. Nothing will happen if you deselect the items.

Once catch is, if you have multiple clips and would like to remove only one of several attributes, the Remove Attributes command will remove all of any selected attribute. The work around, assuming that you will be using the same attributes for all selected clips, is to work in 3 steps. First remove the attribute from only one clip. Second remove all of the specific attributes from the remainder of the clips that you want to work with. And finally, copy and paste the attributes from the first clip to the rest of the clips. Now all of the clips should have the same attributes.

  1. this is not a comment…it’s a rather random question…I have final cut pro 4 on my old powerbook but I am buying a new macbook pro. am going to be forced to upgrade my final cut?? i really don’t use it that often and I can’t afford it so if there is anyway around upgrading I’d rather not. thanks ~ Sunny

  2. Final Cut Pro 4.x was built for the Power PC processor (G4 & G5 basically). The MacBook Pro uses the new processors from Intel. Currently only FCP 5.1+ support the Intel processors (and is backwards compatible with the Power PC processors, they call it a universal application). So unfortunately FCP 4.x is not supported on the MacBook Pro. However, Apple does have built in emulation software for older apps called Rosetta. You might try to install FCP 4 and see if it will run, but if it does, I bet it will be to slow to use. You should check out Apple’s site as they have some really good FCP upgrade prices that are only good through the end of the year.
