general error with batch exporting MP4 in FCP 7
on Jun 23, 2012 at 5:22:58 pm

Hi all

I need to batch export about 5000 subclips from FCP 7! And I'd like to export them already in mp4 (video format: h264 data rate 1000kbps, Size:current, Frame rate:current, encoding mode: best quality - multipass, audio AAC-LC 128kbps stereo 48khz encoding quality: best).

But whenever I try, the batch export fails and it tells me general error in the status bar of Export Queue.

In fact, it tells me that whenever I try any batch export in mp4, it doesn't matter how few files or the mp4 configuraton. I've tested it also in a FCP5 in an older mac i have around, same problem.

Batch exporting in quicktime movie works just fine. If i try to export one single video in the mp4 format mentioned, works as well. It just the batch that is not working.

Im running on mac os x 10.6.8, 2.3Ghz Intel core i5 4gb memory. My final cut is 7.0.3

I know i could export them in the current MOV settings and batch convert them later with after effects or something else, but i would take probably more time and disk space that I have. Maybe compressor is a solution, can I send several subclips directly from FCP to compressor all at once?

Hope you guys can help me.
