final cut pro and exporting
on Jul 11, 2010 at 3:12:57 pm

I'm working on a project with my boyfriend, and I'm writing this question based on the info he gave me, so forgive me if I don't word everything correctly. (I'm not a tech person at all)

Here's what has happened so far:
he's copied native footage from his canon 7D onto hard drive (1280X720 resolution)
compressed native footage into prores 422 (I think mid range prores)
edited prores footage in FCP

now my question is... when we want to export what happens?

Does it export as prores only? can we export in HD? can we export the project using the native footage?

please help. we want a higher quality final product, but neither of us know much about prores.

If you export "Current Settings" you create a QT that is pro-rez. Your HD timeline.

You can output Quicktime Conversions and select any other format if you want to create a different file. you best bet is always to export "current settings" ref file & then drop that file into a compression software like "compressor" and create an alt file, IE; h.264, flash, mov, wmv, ect.

Look up "Episode" compression software - it does it all.
