Exporting from Final Cut Pro can sometimes be frustrating.  This is especially true if you run into video interlace problems.


I had originally intended to write this article for Final Cut Pro X users.  However, this article will also benefit users who are using Final Cut Pro 7 along with Compressor 3.0.  So please, forgive me a ahead of time if you are not a Final Cut Pro X user.

I was inspired to write this article, because GeniusDV has received support calls from frustrated customers who are having issues exporting high quality video that looks clean on a progressive display.

Don't worry, the steps in this tutorial are identical for Compressor 3.0 and 4.0.

In an effort to celebrate the now 'retired' Final Cut Studio software, GeniusDV is giving away all of our Final Cut Pro 7.0 tutorials!  

GeniusDV is offering one last Final Cut Studio class that starts Jan 23rd - Jan 26th in Orlando, FL.  Seating is limited to the first 5 individuals.  That being said, because of the continued popularity of Final Cut Pro 7.0 we will still continue to offer 'onsite' and customized Final Cut Pro 7.0 training. 

If you decide to make the jump to Final Cut Pro X, be sure to check out our updated training class schedule!
