Question by Lola: How to save my work in Final Cut Pro as a Quicktime proxy version?

I need to save the work in 2 formats:

1 – Quicktime (at the highest available quality)

2 – Quicktime (a proxy version – PAL, H264 codec)

For the first one, do I just EXPORT and click QUICKTIME and use the default setting?

For the second one, I have no idea… Can anyone pls help?

    You could send the project to QuickTime however you are asking for the “Highest Quality” so the best option available is exporting it to “Compressor” do have that installed with FCP?

    There are more option and as that is what Apple designed it for yet H264 within QuickTime can be achieved ONLY if you have QuickTime Pro and FCP 6 or later using ProRes 422.

    This would be the highest quality to export with FCP.

    UPDATE:
    As to proxy do you have QuickTime Pro?
    Don’t worry about the proxy as you are not building or making a web page the “Webmaster” will know what to do with the file when your done.

    The only part that concerns me here is using QuickTime to convert it to PAL whereas “Compressor” does a better job of that.

    Just want you to pass.
