Lesson 16. Finishing and Outputting > Exporting Finished Sequences

Exporting Finished Sequences

One of the most common output options you'll choose for your completed sequences is to export a media file that can be digitally distributed. You can choose to export a high-quality file to import into special-effects applications, burn on a DVD, or archive on a FireWire drive. You can also experiment with lower-quality file formats for delivery on the Internet through email or on a cell phone. Often you will want to export multiple versions of your project for delivery in a number of different ways.

Final Cut Pro utilizes QuickTime as its standard media format. You can export using several different QuickTime-compatible file formats. The specific type of compression or decompression you choose during exporting is called a codec, short for compression/decompression. You can choose to export using the current codec for Final Cut Pro clips and sequence material, or you can use a different QuickTime codec for other types of video, audio, or graphics files.
