I seem to remember being able to delete rendered files or other files that would help reduce the overall file size?
This wouldn't be for video that I'm currently working on but rather something I've already completed and put into the archives.

I highly recommend Final Cut Library Manager.

well this app is a game changer. just deleted 600g of rendered files.
my chipping folder is now 80mb vs 188g.
Maybe i can finally get organized with this.
thanks a bunch.

Still lacking some requested features but, yes Final Cut Library Manager is your friend in some cases. Wondering if there will be integrated tool in FCPX some day?

Another approach I use is export a master file from FCPX and use an external app to encode. I use Sorenson Squeeze. As mentioned, mp4 is the most compatible format. In Squeeze and other encoding apps you have much greater control over the encode parameters. mcdvoice
