I want to be able to edit destructively in Final Cut Pro. While I understand how amazing non-destructive editing is, there are reasons to want to be able to edit destructively. The question is, can you edit destructively in FCP? For those who don't know what this means: Let's say I have a few 10 minute long video files. I want to be able to cut a few minute long clips from the original 10 minute videos and put them into my timeline. Then I want to make these smaller clips their own stand alone files, enabling me to delete the original 10 minute files. In all honesty, this is a very simple concept and idea and as far as I've found there is no way to do it, which makes no sense to me from such expensive software. Not knowledged with Final Cut Pro? Well I've got Adobe Premier CS3 as well so if you know how to do it with that, let me know.
