Exporting out NON self contained reference movie in FCP
on May 12, 2009 at 4:40:21 pm

I am getting a "General Error" every time I try to send out a reference QT from FCP. I suspect it's my frame size (1868 x 780). Anyone know any cool tricks to circumvent this? I want to use multi core compressor, but it's failing because I have to send directly from the timeline.

1) do you have enough free space on the target drive?

2) or delete all your renders and re-render. sometimes a buggy render file causes this

I have over 3TB of space on a raid 5 array. NO renders, as this is a cuts only sequence with native footage.

Here's a real question for the final cut pro experts out there. When you export using compressor, does FCP create a reference movie???

No, it uses an XML based transfer and connects to the original media. I wish you could import XMLs to Compressor. It'd be cool.

What happens when you nest your timeline in a standard timeline and render, will it work then? Try a few seconds and see as a test.

Any still frames in your timeline?

I would rather not nest, because I have 4 reels at 25 min each of 4:4:4 RGB LOG files. Won't rendering bring me down to 8bit and just eat up gobs of space?

THis is just a test to see if it works. Take a few seconds and nest it into a normal size timeline 1920x1080 10bit Log or whatever you want.

see if it exports, then this will tell you if it's the frame size.

Make sense?
