Selecting Items in the Browser to Batch Export

You can select as many clips, sequences, and bins as you want to batch export.

To place clips, sequences, and bins in the Export Queue
  1. In the Browser, select clips, bins, and sequences you want to export.

    Figure. Browser window showing clips selected for export.
  2. Choose File > Batch Export.

    The Export Queue window appears with the selected items. A bin named Batch N is automatically created with your selections, where N is the bin’s number.

  3. To change the name of a bin in the Export Queue, click the bin’s name once to select it, wait a moment, then click the name a second time. Type a new name.

    Figure. Export Queue window showing a bin being renamed.
  4. To create a new bin, choose File > New > Bin (or press Command-B).

    Each bin in the Export Queue has its own export settings. You may want to reorganize items into different bins to keep items with the same settings in the same bin.

  5. To add additional items, do one of the following:

    • Select additional items, then choose File > Batch Export again.

    • Drag items from the Browser to a bin in the Export Queue window.

    To select batch export settings, see Selecting Batch Export Settings.

    If you don’t want to select settings now, you can close the Export Queue window. To select export settings later, choose Window > Export Queue.

Important: Items in the Export Queue disappear after you quit Final Cut Pro. If you quit before you batch export, you’ll have to add the items to the Export Queue again.
