QuickTime Export from Final Cut Pro

quicktime_icon.pngThere are two ways to export a Quicktime movie from Final Cut Pro, as a self-contained movie or as a reference file.

A reference movie is a smaller file that contains references to the captured media but does not contain the actual video media itself. The advantages of exporting a QuickTime movie without self-contained media are:

  • The export time of a reference movie is almost instantaneous.
  • The footprint of the QT movie will be very small, because it will reference the original video media files already on your local system.
  • The only export time required is for the associated audio content. A Quicktime reference movie will still collect all the audio content, but will reference all the video content.
*Caution: If you were to send this reference file to someone, in order for them to play it back, you would also have had to send all of the original movie files along with it.

A self-contained movie contains both the video and audio media within the single clip and is required if you plan on playing back your Quicktime movie on a different computer.

Exporting A Self Contained Quicktime Movie
1 With a sequence loaded into the timeline go to File > Export > QuickTime Movie.
2 Choose a location to save the file.
3 Choose to include Audio only, Video only or Audio and Video, then click Save. See how to export a 16X9 QuickTime Movie From Final Cut Pro.
