FCPX export portion

Postby spazure » Mon Jun 11, 2012 1:15 pm

I have a WIP but I don't know how to export just the completed parts, only the whole video (which is just 3mins of music with blackness).

I'm using FCPX on OSX Lion. Any ideas? I want to put it on here to get some ops, but the rules in that forum say I should have a small portion of the video and not the whole thing.

If I understand you correctly you want to export a part of your video from Final Cut?

Go to the beginning of the part you want to export in your timeline, press 'i' (for in), go to the end of the part, press 'o' (for out).
Then export it as usual. :awesome: Works as well with your video source, just hit the i and o when you're viewing your footage in the viewer.

Hm, actually. That selects it, but when I export it still does the whole thing. :(

Hm, it shouldn't do that. Screenshot? You have the sequence selected when you export, right?

Errr.. I think we have different versions of Final Cut, as that doesn't look like anything I've seen before.

No worries, I realized I can just trim, export, then undo the trim. ^^

That is true, most likely. I downgraded to FCE because FCP gave me too much trouble on my Macbook. However, if FCP can't even easily export a sequence, that's not really cool. :-/
