Problem exporting footage from Final Cut Pro 7.0.3
on Dec 15, 2011 at 5:05:15 pm

Hi, I was wondering if anyone can help me with a problem I'm having.
I have an edited sequence in Final Cut Pro and I need to export some clips so I can do some work on them in After Effects.
The original footage was shot with a Canon 5D mark II, it was converted to Apple Pro Res 422 with the Canon eos plugin.
I exported the clips via: File > Export > Using Quicktime Conversion with the Animation codec but the exported clips look darker than the footage in the Final Cut Pro sequence.
I tried using Compressor both with the Animation Codec and with the "None" compression option, but the results were the same.
The strange thing is that when I export the clips in Final Cut via: File > Export > Quicktime Movie, the clips look the same has the original ones. I don't want to use this export method though because of the loss of image quality that it causes.
Can anyone help?
Thank you

Forget about Animation and QT Conversion.
Export from your time-line with the current settings (Prores).

DON'T DO THAT. Do not recompress your footage. BAD idea. File>EXPORT>QUICKTIME MOVIE. Check SELF CONTAINED. That will export a full res file, not recompressed. And it will be ProRes...fine for use in AE.

There is NO quality loss. None. Zip. Zero. FCP copies over the data to a new file...same codec. Zero quality loss.
