Outputting Your Sequence

BySam Kauffmann

This chapter helps the readers to finish films and videos in Avid. It also discusses several situations in which one might want to export sequences or even a single frame from Media Composer. In addition to outputting files directly for distribution, there are lots of software programs out there to sweeten, enhance or correct the project. Having a knowledgeable sound mixer tweak every clip is a wonderful gift to the project, and the chapter explains how to send the project to a Pro Tools mixing station. There are two Export Settings: one is for exporting a QuickTime video and the other is for the audio tracks. Post-production truly is a collaborative endeavor and learning how to send files to others is key to that collaboration.
