Join Connor Watson for an in-depth discussion in this video Exporting for iPods, part of Final Cut Express 4 Essential Training.
Final Cut Express offers the ability to export your finished movie, so that it…can be viewed on a video iPod. So if you are out and you want to show someone…what you have been working on, a quick way to show them would be from your…iPod. This is a very straightforward process.…Select a project for export within the browser, then go to File > Export >…QuickTime Conversion. Then change the format to iPod, give it a name, then…choose to save it in your Movies folder, then click Save. Final Cut Express…then converts the movie to the optimized aspect ratio of 320x240 for the iPod.…
Let's take a look at it.…When you double-click the movie file you have just saved, it will automatically…be added to the iTunes library. …(Music playing.)…So now all you have to do is connect your iPod…and import the movie. There you have it. It's that easy. There is no settings…to modify and the video is ready to go mobile.…

Q: After changing the Mac OS X Expose keys to dashes as instructed in the tutorial, the Expose keys -F9, F10, and F11- retain their Expose functions and override the Final Cut keyboard shortcuts. Why have the keys kept their original functions?
A: After setting the Expose Settings to dashes, go into the Mac OS X System Preferences and choose Keyboard. Once there, click on the Keyboard tab, then click to check the box "Use all F1, F2, etc. keys as standard function keys.” This should release F9, F10, and F11 from their Expose functions and allow them to be uses as editing keys in Final Cut.
