Moving footage in and out of Final Cut Pro is an important part of the overall editing process. Moving material into a project is called importing; moving it out is called exporting. But you don't necessarily just import clips at the beginning of a project and export a finished sequence when you're done. Along the way, you may need to add another clip, graphic, or audio file. Or you may need to export a single frame from a clip for the graphic artist to use in designing the opening titles. Perhaps you need outside approval on just the narration before locking down the entire sequence. Or you may want to post a current version of your sequence to the Web for others on your production team to view. Such importing and exporting might occur anytime throughout the editing process.
