Hi everyone - I have a client that filmed a documentary style interview.
They want me to export a separate mp4 file for each answer the subject gave. The footage is a few hours with about 200 questions. Is there a way to quickly send a clip to compressor then export them all at once?
The only way I could think of was using the range selector to select it, send to compressor. But even this seems like it will take awhile. Does anyone know any technique that would help make this go quickly?
the problem I'm having now is I can't run the red raw footage and have to use proxy.
Is there any way to stay in proxy then export as full optimized clip??
(or alternatively, send to compressor not as proxy while still in proxy?)
In the Viewer menu you can switch which version FCPX uses, Proxy or Original/Optimized. What ever that is set to, that is what is used for playback and export. To export full resolution, simply switch that menu item to Original/Optimized, that's what you get. Pretty easy.

Is there a way to make that the default and just quickly export them?
By 4.1 I believe they are talking about the High Profile level of H.264. I am unaware of any way thru compressor or FCPX to specifically set that. You will probably have to export a file and then use an application like media info or similar to check the profile level that was created. Profile levels and types can be selected in more advanced compression applications like Sorensen Squeeze and probably Episode.
I agree, and I don't think for most purposes varying levels of the 4.0 flavor make any difference. BUT - the OP's original question indicated that his client requested H.264 at 4.1 High Profile level. So, that is one way to get it.
