Video: Sharing projects using presets

In this movie, we will take a look at how you get your program out of Final Cut Pro by using one of the many available sharing templates. Okay, I am going to select my 13.1 project, which is the project I want to share and then come up to this button here. By default it's going to share the entire project, but as I hover over this button, you'll notice I have the option of sharing the project, event clip, or Timeline range. So just know I can also share clips in my Event Library or a portion of my project if I went into it and selected a Timeline range once I was inside the project.

Sharing projects using presets

In this movie, we will take a look at how you get your program out of Final Cut Pro by using one of the many available sharing templates. Okay, I am going to select my 13.1 project, which is the project I want to share and then come up to this button here. By default it's going to share the entire project, but as I hover over this button, you'll notice I have the option of sharing the project, event clip, or Timeline range. So just know I can also share clips in my Event Library or a portion of my project if I went into it and selected a Timeline range once I was inside the project.

So I'm going to go ahead and click on this button, and you can see that I get a pop-up menu that has several options, let's go through several of these. I am going to skip DVD and Master File for now, because I am going to cover those in future movies. But as you can see, below that we have YouTube, Vimeo and Facebook. Each of these options allows you to input your username and password for immediate access to popular video hosting sites. So let's just go through a few of these, so you can see a couple of the settings within each. Let's start with YouTube, and you can see that I have a still frame of my program here, but if I skim over the image, it shows the entire thing.

I also have the title and description right here. You can simply click in here and just rename this, and I can rename my Description. And you can also change Creator information as well as give it some more Tags. Now along the bottom I have my default settings. Notice that I can not click on any of these to make any changes. Instead, if I want to make an adjustment, I have to come over here to Settings.

Depending on your Project Settings you'll have various options under this pulldown menu right here. If I change to a new resolution, the settings along the bottom change accordingly. So if you take a look at frame size as well as size here, I am going to change from Large to SD, and you can see that may frame size decreased and my size of my file decreased pretty dramatically. I am going to go back to Large. I also have the ability to change my Compression type where I have the option for Faster encode or Better quality.

Now this is just asking for the quality of Compression that I want. Better quality is a multi-pass compression which means the Final Cut first analyzes the video and then compresses it. This results in a sharper, smaller file, but it will take longer. And Faster encode is a single pass compression, which means the video is compressed on the fly, which means that it would be quicker, but it won't look quite as good. We'll go ahead and change this to Better quality. I also have a couple of YouTube-specific settings, where I can choose whether or not to make the movie Private, and I can choose which Category to put it in.

When I am all done at these settings, I can press Next and then put in my YouTube Account Name and Password, and then it's going to encode it and then publish it directly to YouTube under my YouTube account. I am going to Cancel this for now, because I want to move on to a couple of these other options. Now the Vimeo and Facebook options are very, very similar to YouTube, I'll just quickly open each of these to show you the various settings. If I choose Vimeo, looks exactly the same on the Info tab, basically we have our entire program here.

I can change the Title, Description and so on. I have my settings along the bottom, which if I want to change I can go into here and do that and then here is a Vimeo-specific setting, Viewable by, and then you can change that if you need to. And then when I click on Next, same deal, I sign in, and it sends it directly to Vimeo. And Facebook same deal. And then under Settings I have Facebook-specific settings of Viewable by, and you can see that you can choose who you want to see it and then sign in and away it goes.

Now there are a couple of other share options which you can access via the Add Destination button here, for examples CNN iReport. If I double-click here I can put in my information here, choose my Resolution and Compression, and it's the same sort of deal. I am going to go ahead and remove that from that menu. Now there are two more options to get your program ready to be viewed on an Apple device. There are two HD templates that it allows you to use, the 720p or 1080p flavor. Many of the options are quite similar to the ones we just covered, but there are several differences which I'll quickly go over.

So I'm going to select the 720p option, but just note that the 1080p options are very similar. So, as you can see, under the Info tab, everything is behaving basically the same way. I can change my basic information. And then along the bottom I have my various settings. These settings are optimized for an Apple device like an iPad, iPhone, or Apple TV, and if I hover my mouse over this button here it tells you exactly what devices it's optimized for. So if I come over to Settings, there are a few additional options which we can briefly cover.

Now as you can see, it's sending it out as an Apple MPEG-4 movie, with a Video codec of H.264. Now this is a very common Apple codec and again I can choose Faster encode or Better quality just like before. I can also choose the Resolution that I want just like before. Notice that when I choose a lower resolution, I get a few more supported devices included in my list here. I'm going to go ahead and change that back. I can also choose to include chapter markers, which we're going to go into more detail in a future movie.

Below that it asks me if I want to add this file to any playlists. By default it's going to sent it to my iTunes Library, which makes it readily available to move directly to my Apple device or to mirror it on an Apple TV via home sharing. You can also send it to the Media Browser, which makes it available in other Apple applications that use the Media Browser, like GarageBand or Keynote. If I choose Do Nothing, then it's just going to save it as a file on my system. Now let's come up here to Format.

As we're aware right now it's optimized for Apple devices, specifically these Apple devices here. If I change this to Computer or Web Hosting, these settings along the bottom are going to change and make it optimized for viewing on a computer, or for the web. But if I instead come up to the options under Mastering, I am going to get significantly more available settings. First I can choose whether to include Video and Audio or isolate my Video or Audio. I am going to choose Video and Audio here, and you can see that under Video codec instead of just my H.264, it gives me quite a few other options.

So in this sense I'm not locked into this one codec, I can choose anything that I want, I do have other options. And I can still come down here and send it to my iTunes Library if I want to, receive a little bit more control. I am just going to change this back to Apple devices and everything is looking good, we don't need chapter markers. I don't want it to add to a playlist, so I am going to hit Next, and we'll go ahead and just save it to my Desktop. And if we minimize Final Cut, I have my Apple device optimized file right here. Let's go ahead and just play it in QuickTime, and you can see that I have my file right here.

(video playing) So, as you can see, there are quite a few sharing options that let me send my project to various programs in various formats.
