Printing to Video

The Print to Video command is the correct choice when you want to make a video tape copy of a Final Cut Express sequence or clip that includes pre-program elements, such as color bars, slate, and countdown. Print to Video is also your best choice if you want to loop playback and print multiple passes of your sequence on the same tape. If you have a controllable camcorder or deck, you can set up your Device Control preset so that FCE controls your deck during a Print to Video operation, but you don’t need a deck that supports device control to use Print to Video. For information on hardware setup, see Chapter 2, “Installing and Setting Up.”

If you don’t need customized pre-program elements at the beginning of your dub, playing your sequence in the Timeline and recording the output directly may give you satisfactory results and save you some time as well. See “Recording Timeline Playback” earlier in this chapter.
