Join Connor Watson for an in-depth discussion in this video Exporting to tape, part of Final Cut Express 4 Essential Training.
Another way to deliver or archive your video production is to master the final…project to tape by using the Print to Video command. Roughly you can place…about 60 minutes of DV video on tape, which is about 12 gigabytes on a hard…drive. Before you print a video make sure that you have connected the video…camera to the computer via FireWire cable, and that the camera is placed in the…VCR or Play mode.…Go to the Easy Setup and make sure that you are using the correct setup.…In this case, I am exporting a DV-NTSC Anamorphic sequence.…
Set an in-point at the beginning of the sequence and a out-point at the end. Go…to File > Print to Video.…Inside this box you can predefine what happens before and after you record the…sequence to tape. For broadcast purposes you only have a few seconds of color…bars for calibration, followed by a few seconds of black.…The Slate option will allow you to give your project a custom name that will…show before the program, and you can also designate a countdown if needed.…

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.
