When adjusting a Final Cut Pro template, by default, dragging it will automatically resize the duration. However, this can be annoying if you would like to cut out certain scenes from Final Cut Pro templates to remove or re-use the scenes.

To prevent a Final Cut Pro template from automatically resizing duration when dragging, please follow these instructions. It is important to note that you should have all of your media placed into the placeholders and all customizations done before proceeding with the following steps:

1. Right click on the Generator in the timeline and create a New Compound Clip

2. A pop-up window will appear at the top of your screen

3. Create a name, set the Event location, and click OK

4. You can now make modifications to the generator such as cuts or speed changes

We hope this helps!
