Outputting to Tape

When outputting your sequence to tape, Final Cut Pro can work with a wide variety of tape formats. It can output through FireWire to DV, DVCPRO, HDV, and DVCPRO HD. It can output to other tape formats, from VHS to DigiBeta, as long as you have the hardware to support it. You will usually record a master copy of your sequence to the same tape format you started with or the format that's required for delivery, but you may also want to make a viewing copy on a different format, such as VHS.

As part of the output to tape, you will generally record additional material consisting of color bars and tone, program slate, countdown, and black before the sequence begins. This is collectively called leader material and is added in different ways, depending on the output method you choose.
