A great portable way to show off your video projects is through your very own iPod.  We accomplish this by exporting movie files to iTunes first. 

First choose your sequence in the bin.  Enable all tracks for the sequence.  Mark the entire sequence in/out then right click expert render in/out.

Next, right click on the sequence in the bin and choose Export.  Choose Save As:  project_name.mov on the Desktop.  Now for your Export Setting:  Send to QT Movie, then Options.  Export As:  Quick Time Movie - Use Enabled Tracks

Next, Click Same as Source - select Use Avid DV Codec.  Choose Video and Audio.  Choose 601/709.  Display Aspect Ratio:  601 non-square (720x486).  Finally Save again with all options set.

Ok, now you're ready to add to iTunes.  First, Close Avid, and open up iTunes.  Select the Movie tab under Library.  Choose File - add to library, then navigate to the desktop and choose the Quicktime file to import.

Finally, we will add it to the iPod.  Select the video clip and go to the Advanced tab.  Choose iPod or iPhone version; it will take a minute or so to convert the file to an MPEG-4 Video file.  Select the newly created video file for info.  Make sure you have the MPEG-4 version.  Drag the video file to the iPod under devices.  Be sure not to sync the iPod to the computer, or it will erase everthing in iTunes.  You only need to drag the file to the iPod.
