Chapter 2. Welcome to Final Cut Pro > Using External Video Settings

Using External Video Settings

External Video settings specify how Final Cut Pro feeds video and audio to your external video camcorder or deck, which in turn feeds your external video monitors and audio speakers. You control Final Cut Pro's External Video settings in three locations:

  • The External Video pop-up menu on the Summary tab of the Audio/Video settings window displays the external video setting for your current Easy Setup. You can use the pop-up menu on the Summary tab to select a different setting. FCP will use this setting to route video output for both playing and recording. This menu is context sensitive; you will see only the options that your currently connected hardware will support.

  • The External Video tab of the Audio/Video Settings window offers the complete array of external video settings. You can select one output destination for playing your video output and a different output routing for recording video output.

  • The View > External Video menu selection is the third control point for external video output. You can use this control to turn off FCP's external video output or to control display of rendered frames on external video monitors. To learn more about choreographing FCP's external video settings, see “FCP Protocol: Controlling External Video Output” in Chapter 1.
