Exporting a single clip from a sequence
on Jul 2, 2010 at 7:55:26 pm

It's quite possible that I'm doing this a little backwards. My original intent was to put together a rough cut, do some AE work on certain clips, then come back into FCP and get everything nice and tight. Well, I got into it and everything in my FCP timeline is looking like a final cut. There are some clip that I want to take into After Effects, though, and add some subtle ethereal glows.blurs to.

Is there a way to render out a QT movie of an individual clip, without copy/pasting it into a new sequence? I'm thinking I could export the clips I want, put them in a folder, do my AE work, import those finished files back into FCP and just drop them over the originals.

Yup, if there aren't any fancy transitions, that's what I'd do. The "Copy>Paste Attributes>Content" trick works like a charm in such cases. I use it all the time.

Right, but what's the best way to get individual clips out of FCP in the first place. In the sequence, I selected a clip and tried export using QT conversion and it seemed to be exporting the whole sequence?

Double-click on the clip in the edit timeline. It goes into the clip viewer. Export from there.

another thing i sometimes do if i want handles is to use the media manager on that single clip.

select clip, open MM

COPY mode
DO delete unused,
add handles
base media file names on: Clip names
