How to Export more than one video in Final Cut Pro at the same time, AKA Batch Export.

<<back to tutorial Archives

Batch Export allows you to export more than one video in Final Cut Pro at the same time, saving you a bunch of time.  Feel free to thank me. 🙂

Make sure all your sequences are rendered (with no red lines: Command R or Sequence > Render Selection > Both), then add your IN and OUT points by pressing I for IN and O for OUT.

Then select all your sequences in your browser, right click > Batch Export.

You can adjust your settings and choose where you wish to save all your exports at once.

-Set Destinations (Where you want your file to be), Hit Choose.

-Format (The pull down menu allows you to select different video formats.)

-Settings (Know where your videos are going to be played before you export so you have the correct export settings.)

-Naming (The naming option allows you to change/add file extensions. You really don’t need to change this, in fact I really don’t know when you would use this. If you know, feel free to share with me.)

-Include  (Audio and Video, Make self-contained if you want your video to be able to be played on a different computer with out your supporting files, use item IN/OUT.

4. Now you are ready to Export.

Knowing how to Batch Export will allow you to work smart. Yay!

    My canvas contains several edits or edited segments that I need to export separately as MOV’s. Is there any batch export feature I could use to make this. Exporting 80 of this segment will take me forever. Any help?

    1. Monica Briano says:

      Sure. make each segment a sequences. Its called nesting, you can do this by going to the SEQUENCE>NEST ITEMS. Then in your browser window it will create sequences then follow the steps by right clicking and batch export.

      From my memory it renders it before it exports but the redline comes back once its done exporting into a .mov. I’m even tempted to say that strange things happen to the frames when I tried to export w out rendering.
