But SOMEBODY doesn’t know this.

With programs like Final Cut and iMovie (As well as most other mainstream video editing programs) you can start and stop clip capture by pressing the spacebar during videotape playback.

This makes it easy to grab portions of scenes: click on Final Cut or iMovie’s Play button to play the tape, and when something rolls by that you want to capture, hit the spacebar to grab it.

You can also use the spacebar to start and stop general video playback to preview your movie.
