Can't Export as a Quicktime Movie
on Jun 20, 2014 at 5:26:13 pm

I am exporting from FCP 7 in order to go to Compressor and then DVD Studio Pro.

The Canon C100 footage was first converted using ClipWrap before being pulled into
FCP and the Canon Rebel DSLR footage was first converted using MPEG Streamclip before
being pulled into FCP.

FCP will let me Export "Using Quicktime Conversion" but not as a "Quicktime Movie",
("Error: not enough memory") which
is the option I need to make a DVD.

Is there a fix?

Got some excellent ideas from Creative Cow.
More info:

The sequence has several TIFF images - is that a problem?
Should I export them as a QT movie and import them back in?

I just successfully made a DVD from one minute of the 30-minute
sequence.

So now I know I can probably make 6 movies that are
5-minutes long each and create the DVD that way.

Which idea is better?
1 - Create 5-minute movies in FCP, export them
separately and paste them together in DVD Studio Pro...

or

2 - Bring the first 5-minutes into a fresh FCP sequence and
render it (BTW, nothing would render before, either - I forgot to
mention that in the original post), then pull in the next 5
minutes, render that, and possibly re-create the entire
sequence bit by bit - then try Exporting again.

Things working better when I remove TIFFs.

Is it possible the TIFFs were the sole culprit?

I never had a problem in the SD days - is it a new
situation now - incompatibility with HD?

Is there a better stills format than TIFF?

Or just export them as a QT movie and import back in?

(All my TIFFs are in groups that last a minute or so.)

How big are the TIFFs? FCP can't handle anything over 4000 pixels.

[david mayer] "I never had a problem in the SD days - is it a new

Most likely because the stills were smaller then.

[david mayer] "Is there a better stills format than TIFF?"

I use TIFFs all the time...just check the size.

[david mayer] "Or just export them as a QT movie and import back in?"

How can you do that when you can't export a QT movie BECAUSE they are in the cut? :)

Shane - I knocked down the size of the TIFFs and that seems
to have fixed everything.

Thanks so much.

(BTW, to answer your question, I was able to export
the TIFFs before as a QT movie "Using quick Time compression"
but not using the one I needed for Compressor: as "Quicktime Movie")
