I need to export a FCP project into an FLV file, but don't know how, any ideas?

Export as an H.264 file with AAC Audio, as quicktime conversion. Then change the file extension to .flv. This works flawlessly! If you will be doing this alot I would recommend the el Gato TurboHD, its a USB drive you plug into your computer and contains a program that pumps out H.264 files very fast! I use it all the time, all of my editing online and put them into flash this way.

edit:

Here is a link to the product-

Will that keep the audio, I was able to successfully change the mov to a flv but when i did that i lost the audio, i will try exactly what you said and see if that works, if it does i will be soo happy, been trying to figure this out since yesterday.

You could export directly to FLV with Perian (http://perian.org/#download). It will integrate FLV and many other omitted formats to your Quicktime. In FCP, under Export using Quicktime Conversion, you'll have the choice to export to FLV.

Thanks, but when i exported using quicktime conversion the file was all distorted, very bad quality.

I always export a self-contained QT (not QT Conversion) with Current Settings. Then I use Compressor to make the h.264 from that file. It's fast if you have QMaster setup to use multiple cores.

What John said is probably the best way to do it. I still would recommend elgato's program if you are going to be doing this alot. It does this same thing faster.
