exporting unrendered footage from fcp/distressing footage

Hi,

Finishing a project in FCP and I want the image to appear distressed/degraded. When I was viewing during playback, i noticed that leaving my timeline un-rendered created a look i was somewhat happy with. Is there a way to export a timeline AS IS, not rendering it out? One option i thought of was to screen cap as it played, but i wasn't able to screen cap at my full frame size. I am looking for a way to export directly from fcp.

One affect the unrendered footage has is that it was playing less than the normal frames per second (i.e., if 1 second was 30 fps, fcp would playback, say, 15). Is there an effect I can use to do this? Not slow the footage down, but time map it so that 1 second of footage still occupies 1 second of space on the timeline but plays back at half speed?

Lastly, can anyone recommend any good filters which emulate video distress or damage?

I'd google the term, "bad video". You should find something for FCP. When done, you can export the timeline using QT conversion, and pick a frame rate of 15 fps if you want.

FCP also has a built in filter called Strobe that will enable you to reduce the frame rate without affecting the time. Just set it to whatever frame rate looks good to you.
