Final Cut Pro QuickTip #54Exporting video for iPod
Everyone I have talked to is very excited about the latest ipod that has the ability to play video. Even if you dont have a G5 iPod, you can still produce video content, and in this Final Cut Pro QuickTip, Ill show you how to export your sequence from Final Cut Pro to a format that will work with the portable music (and now video) player.
Step 1: With your sequence complete, Right Click the sequence in the Browser Window and select Export>Using QuickTime Conversion.
Step 2: From the Format menu select iPod (320x240).
Step 3: Name the file and select the target destination, then click the Save Button. The export will take a while. Even with a G5, exporting a 3 minute clip takes around 30 minutes.
Wow! That was simple.
When you are done, transfer the file to your iPod, or make it available from your website for other who may want download and run it on their portable player.
