Export to an HD Quicktime from Final Cut Pro
on Jun 2, 2011 at 5:12:10 pm

For some reason I am unable to export my sequence to an HD Quicktime. It only exports a portion of my sequence. Depending on the format of the quicktime, the length varies, but the size of the export remains the same (1.61GB). I can export to H264 and other formats as well as SD Quicktimes, just not an HD Quicktime. Has anyone encountered this problem? Any suggestions?

What format are you working with in the sequence? CODEC? How are you exporting? H.264, FYI, is an HD format. All the Apple Movie Trailers are H.264.

If you go FILE>EXPORT>QUICKTIME MOVIE...and choose SELF CONTAINED, FCP will export a file that is your entire sequence, and in the same codec as that sequence. Make sure you mark IN and OUT where you want the movie to start and end.

What are your sequence settings, and what is the format of the source material?

frame size: 1920x1080 (HDTV 1080i (16:9)
pixel aspect: square
editing timebase: 23.98 (reason: changed sequence settings to match getty stock clip settings)
compressor: appel prores 422 (HQ)


The individual source material is from a stock video site, so the individual clips have different settings.

My guess is that it's having trouble with one of the render files or one of the stock files... might re render it all. None of it was prores to begin with, right?

Probably need to transcode the files which aren't ProRes to ProRes... conform the sequence and try it again.

How much space is left on the drive you are exporting to? Can you try exporting to a different drive?

I've tried exporting everywhere. That is not the issue. Thanks, though.

Not to bring the question or discussion down too far, but since I didn't see a direct answer to his reference, I'd at least hang a quick +1 on Shane's post by double checking that:

a) The Timeline is completely free of In and Out points (the old Alt-X cure), and/or

b) Any In and Out points in the Timeline are exactly where you want your exported clip to start and end.

Exported both ways. One with no "in" and "out" points. The other with an "in" at the beginning and an "out" at the end. Neither worked.

h.264 files aren't supported in FCP 7... so if that's what some of these clips are, that is the reason you're having problems... Gotta transcode them to ProRes.

[Katy Clore] "I've tried exporting everywhere."
As long as you don't know if the problem in on the rendering or on the exporting, try to render the time-line (Prores) before any exporting.
