Export an Image Sequence - Final Cut Pro X

SALE TODAY: Learn Piano on iOS Sometimes, exporting your video as a series of images can be helpful if you are trying to do something else with your movie, such as add animation or graphics or other visual effects. Every other version of Final Cut Pro lets you do this, along with most other video editing programs. However, the method for doing so in Final Cut Pro X is a little different. Navigate to the top menu bar and click Share -- Export Image Sequence. In the dialog box that appears, you have the option to Export your video as a sequence of DPX images, IFF images, JPEG images, OpenEXR images, Photoshop files, PNG images or TIFF files. JPEG is typically the most favored because it's compressed and can be shared over the internet easily. Under the Advanced tab, you can set up Background Rendering or Send your video to Compressor, which allows you to take your footage and turn it into a much smaller sized file without losing much video quality. Finally, Summary tells you everything you need to know about your video, such as the File Type, Estimated size and Width and Height. When you're ready, click Next. You can then choose where you want to save these images on your computer or hard drive. When you're done, press Save. That's all it takes to export each frame of your video as a series of individual photographs. You can then manipulate each picture however you want. Read more by visiting our page at:
