Help!
I'm trying to export or 'share' a feature film - some footage is 4k some 1080. It's 80 minutes.

I keep gettin this message and I am working on a deadline. I'm a novice at exporting. I want to hit a festival deadline today. I know it is last minute.
ANY suggestions!?


"The operation couldn’t be completed. (com.apple.Compressor.CompressorKit.ErrorDomain error -1.)"

Have you tried exporting with your view settings to Original as oppose Proxy.
I know that might sound weird but I remember having to do that with a feature-length export.
I also avoid Compressor or anything that has high compression.
I export to ProRes444/422 then let Compressor or AME take care of it for delivery.

Wish you luck!

[cybil lake] "I'm trying to export or 'share' a feature film - some footage is 4k some 1080. It's 80 minutes. "

First render the entire timeline to segregate the render phase vs the encode phase. Select all timeline clips with CMD+A then render with CTRL+R.

If that finishes OK, then export directly from FCPX using these options:

File>Share>Master File>Settings>Format>Computer, Video Codec: H.264 Faster Encode, Resolution: (your choice, probably 1080p).

This will produce a high-bit-rate H.264 file which is good quality (double Youtube's bitrate standards), yet which exports quickly. I cannot see any visual difference between "Faster Encode" and "Better Quality".

This will be playable on most systems whether Windows, Mac or dedicated hardware. Theoretically exporting ProRes is better but some older systems cannot handle that and the associated data rate. In general if you don't know the exact specs of the playback system, the above is a good choice. I always do a 720p export as well, since some venue playback systems are really old and clunky.
