Join Abba Shapiro for an in-depth discussion in this video Understanding finishing steps, part of Final Cut Pro X v10.0.9: Narrative Scene Editing.
Once your film is done, and you've looked it over to make sure that it's not too long,…you don't have any extra scenes, you're ready for the finishing step.…Let's step into 07-05, now as you see, I just have one scene here for illustrative purposes.…But the whole idea of finishing is making sure that when you have your scenes connected…back to back, that the audio is consistent, that the luminance and the color are all balanced…for each other, that it's a finished product.…
Now, there are two scenarios to finish your project.…You could finish it completely inside of Final Cut Pro X or perhaps you're going to send…it out to somebody else who is going to work on the audio or the color separately.…In that case, you would simply go up on to the File menu and Export an XML to hand off…to your audio editor or your colorist.…The other option you have is directly sending out a finished copy, and you can do this through…the Share menu, or this button right here.…
