Grab video code:
As you can see it’s going to be smaller, so what is this going to do is and we’re go down here and select my media destination and I have my media manager exports set up. You can set it up for any way you want. I want to hit ok, select my destination and name it and we’re just going to leave it untitled, click save, the frame rate or the present chosen for recompression differs from the item the present frame that would be ignored, okay. And it’s start writing the video.
Now what is this is doing is converting all of my video in my timeline to Apple ProRes 422 or whatever I said it to be. Now after this finishes, I can go get all of my recompress Apple 422 bring in to my timeline and no rendering will be necessary. If you use the Media Manager to recompress all your media before bring it into Final Cut you will not have to render anything except on a change.
So now let me go back up here and show you a couple of other little things here under the media manager make sure you have recompress media reference by duplicating it out just make sure you put on the recompress not anything else. As you can see you can copy move or whatever you want to recompress. So what that does is I go to my finder and go to the place where I stored it if I can find the place where I stored it.
Right here are all of my clips converted to Apple ProRes 422 and when I bring this into my Apple ProRes 422 sequence I won’t have to render. And now there's one more way to do that if you don’t want to use the media manager. So you don’t want to make them all Apple ProRes so you want to make the HDV a ProRes and you want to make the next one H.264 when you can do that but with media manager. Media manager exports some all do same format. What you want to do is select your clips go up to file and select your clips in the browser; you can drag and hide it around them. Put the file, batch export instead of media manager. And what batch export will do it will bring up this little window like this right here and you have all of them selected. Go down here and just click settings and see the following clip—I'm going to select Eliot_Sanders clip and we’re going to select settings and here's all my settings you can set a destination where is it going to be at and the format it’s going to be.
Apple Quicktime Movie I always leave mine at Quicktime Movie. And then you can select what codec you want it to be. I want to make this one Apple ProRes 422 and I'm going to say okay and I'm going to—HDV I'm going to set the settings for HDV and we’re going to make this one DVC Pro. In this next one I'm going to make H.264 by hitting the setting button and like this at H.264 or I will make it XDCAM or uncompress 8 bit, hit ok. And remember you want to recompress all frames. You don’t want to leave that out.
So now that we've got all that setup. We have all our settings set to how we want, we just go into export, bam. Hit the export button and it will start exporting these clips into the location you told it too into the setting that you told it too. So if you just want to convert all your clips into the same setting, say Apple ProRes use the Media Manager. If you want to convert them in the separate different settings use the batch export.
So remember convert all you—most time I do this as professional thing and I just—from what I picked up at work at my have straight over at home, so I set my timeline and sequence settings to Apple ProRes 422, I convert all of my clips with the media manager to Apple ProRes 422 before bringing them in to the timeline then I edit in the timeline with Apple ProRes all that kind of stuff. And then I export as Apple ProRes from Final Cut Pro and then I run it through compressor as H.264. I'll leave it in the 422 format until my very final export.
