Lesson 21. Finishing and Outputting > Exporting Finished Sequences

Exporting Finished Sequences

In Final Cut Pro, you have numerous options to export your finished sequence. Your workflow may include sending a Final Cut Pro sequence out to the Web, DVD, or another application. Keep in mind there is always more than one way to configure your export settings. Preparing media for digital distribution is an exercise in compromise between quality and performance. The higher the data rate, the higher the quality, but the worse the performance. Through practice and trial and error, you will have to decide for yourself the correct balance based on your distribution medium and your intended audience.

Exporting for the Web

For distribution to the Web, you have to know how your audience will get on line. Will they use dial-up modems or broadband connections? Will they have the patience to wait for a download, or will they lose interest if the movie isn't displayed immediately? The answers to these questions will help you determine the correct settings for your Web video.
