Join Lonzell Watson for an in-depth discussion in this video Polishing before delivering, part of Final Cut Express 4 Essential Training.
Over the next few videos, we will be discussing a variety of ways to deliver…your video to your audience, such as making a DVD, printing to tape, publishing…to the web and sending a video to your iPod. But before we get too far ahead of…ourselves, there are a couple of things we need to look at before we send our…video anywhere.…We need to make sure our video is prime for export by making sure that…everything has been rendered and last but not least, does our video look the way…we want it to? In order to make sure everything is rendered, first we need to go…to Sequence > Render All and make sure that everything has a checkmark next to it.…
Next, select the sequences in the browser, then press Option+R to render the…entire project.

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.
