Exporting Media Assets

Exporting is useful for creating copies of media files for editing or for making a backup copy. You can export copies of media assets even if the asset is locked or checked out by another user.

Important: After you export a media asset, the exported file is no longer managed by Final Cut Server. If you want to create a managed copy of an asset that can be checked in and tracked by Final Cut Server, check out the asset.

  1. Select one or more assets, Control-click an asset, then choose Export from the shortcut menu.
