Has FCP X lost Batch Export as well?
on Aug 10, 2011 at 2:55:55 pm

is there a way to batch export sequences out of fcp x? i used to use this all the time in FCP legacy versions, and now I am in the interface I can't find a way of doing it. Surely I don't have to highlight every sequence (sorry, project) and export them individually? thats a real step back if so,

been using fcpx quite a bit and generally really like it. its fast and solid - however I do miss a few things!

Yes, it has. Good feature request, which I'm pretty can be added back in.

All the best,

Tom

I'm assuming batch export went with the ability to select via in and out points what you want to export.

The same here.
I've tried 3 different things:

Creating a new user - worked , but after some time the same problem again.
Trashing preferences using X Manager - same.
Repairing disk permission - didn't work at all.

You suppose Use Compressor now, more than X in general, you can send multiple "Events/Projects" to compressor at a time. Hope that helps.

ok. if you can send multiple projects out to compressor, that makes sense i suppose. i'd rather do it from within FCPX so i hope they add that back.

[Nick ralph] "ok. if you can send multiple projects out to compressor, that makes sense i suppose. i'd rather do it from within FCPX so i hope they add that bac"

If would be nice if they did, but Apple most likely wont add it to X cause that would mean your average consumer wouldn't have to purchase the 50$ Compressor program, they'll most-likely leave it out for that reason alone

I wear many hats.

well tried it via compressor and it is about 5-7 times slower per render than going straight out of the program. which was just the reason i always avoided "send to compressor" in legacy versions.

so basically "send to compressor" is terrible solution to batch export. apple please put this back.

Yes it seems Compressor is not using rendered files from projects and is rendering everything from scratch and that's why it takes so long...

How did you send multiple projects to Compressor?

I am unable to select more than one project at a time.

You don't. There is no batch function in FCP. You can export each project, and then batch process the master files in Compressor.

All the best,

If there is no batch export from FCP X and your suggesting sending each export (i'm assuming to a .mov) just using the Command-E export option...that would take HOURS AND HOURS for a project that had say 100 seperate (approx. 5min) videos.

I shoot long concerts and need to take the 5 hour show and cut out each song to post for my company. It ends up being about 5-7 min. per song. I am shooting in AVCHD @ 720P. One of my projects with a simple text credit in and out, is approx. 1.5gb and takes about 7min to "export" then your saying I have to bring all those 1.5gb files into compressor in order to "Batch compress" them down to 9mb files??? This seems insane and not practical at all. Am I missing something, I am a very VERY novice user of both shooting and editing. I was using Premiere Pro 4 on a windows PC and I could export each sequence to encoder and hit go, come back in about two hours and I was done. Have I screwed myself by switching to FCPX?? Do people NEVER do this?? That is send multiple projects or "sequences" at a time? I thought this would be common. Any help at all would be GREATLY appreciated.

Hi,

I just filed a bug report via bugreporter.apple.com about this feature request.

11-Apr-2012 09:47 PM Soren Pearson:
Summary:
In Final Cut Pro 7, we had the ability to batch export clips and sequences at one time and to select via in and out points what you want to export. (http://documentation.apple.com/en/finalcutpro/usermanual/index.html#chapter=110%26section=1%26tasks=true)

In Final Cut Pro 10, we lost this functionality. Please consider adding this feature along with the ability to select via in and out points what you want to export.

Steps to Reproduce:
N/A

Expected Results:
N/A

Actual Results:
N/A

Regression:
N/A

Notes:
N/A

I will keep you posted on what they say.

I filed one with Apple back in December of 2011. They have released three updates since then, and this was not included. Granted the updates they made are tremendous, and possibly more important. I was able to get a work around going from kind posters here.

I now use "Export Using Compressor Settings" with background rendering turned on, and I deselect the option to open compressor. This allows you to send each project (be it one at a time....) to the export queue, they will only process one at a time, but you can keep adding to queue, and keep working in FCPX.

Apple replied and said that it is a known issues and is currently being investigated. They also said it was a follow up. It could have been a follow up to your report that you submitted in December 2011.

Looks like good news and hope this feature makes it into the next version of FCP 10.

A workaround is to use Xto7 to export a project XML from FCP X into FCP 7, or even 6 which I'm using, and then use the batch export function from the older version.
