About the plugin:
Why is there no keyboard shortcut to open a clip in the timeline? If you hate to cycle through a menu then Final Cat Pro gives you a simple keyboard shortcut. From now on open any clip from anywhere into it's own timeline. Perfect if you want to check your clips from the event browser. Click the button, take a look and return with command-1. Or view the clips in your sequence individually in the timeline and cycle back and forth in the timeline history command [ or command ].
About the makers:
This FCPX plugin is created by two brothers who work as documentary makers. They are heavy users of Final Cut Pro and think the editing software is fantastic. However, as heavy users of FCPX they found some limitations.
They learned themselves how to write software and started on a quest to 'hack' the things that didn't work as smooth as they wanted. Their goals: to feel more in control of their editing projects, safe themselves a lot of time and as a bonus get rid of thousands of mouseclicks every single project.
