Why don't you just use the export to Youtube function builtin the FCPX?

Jack replied to the topic '27" iMac i5 vs i7???' in the forum. 2 years ago

I would recommend upgrading the SSD to as high as you can afford, while remain the basic level for CPU and memory.
Mine is a late 2014 model and was customized to 512GB SSD and i7, which I don't see much necessary. And 8GB is quite enough for multitasking in most of the situation, trust me.

Jack replied to the topic 'Need help: relink 60fps footage failed' in the forum. 5 years ago

Hi Ronny,
Thx for the advice, but it doesn't work. The only that works so far is re-import all the incompatible footage, and try to replace all the unlinked clips on the timeline. Sounds a bit complicated, but we don't have a better way.

So when we tried to update the project from 10.0.5 to 10.1.4, all the 1080p@30p footage are relinked, while the 720p@60p are still missing, says incompatible file. Tried many ways to make FCPX believe the footage are the same, but none worked properly.
Is there a trick to make them relink? Thanks in advance.

Why don't you export a master file first and convert that to DVD using another software? You will at least get a master file instead of getting nothing once it fails for wired reasons. And converting or burning DVD in user-friendly softwares such as iDVD can be enjoyable too.

:) The underneath purple bar is added manually for nothing but to create a border to distinguish voice and audio fx, said by Baiyang. Apart from this, everything else in the timeline is tidy and clean. I think it's smart.

For those who don't know who Baiyang is, here is the link to an introduction of he and his director Tsui Hark, written by Apple's Pro website. www.apple.com/final-cut-pro/in-action/detective-dee/

The interesting story is, he is one of the very few people who adopts FCPX for feature films in China, or perhaps in the world. There is no doubt that it is very challenging to stick to FCPX for the film production but things always have solutions, not in a perfect way at the first beginning but he and his crew are at least trying. And after 3 film's with FCPX, they seem to have a workable workflow now, even for the high budget films with 2000+ vfx shots.

Baiyang is also an ACT pro, who had the first chance to get trained and get hands on FCPX. We shall see more possibilities in the post production of films. Attached photos are showing what a film-length sequence/project looks like in FCPX, and how it looks like on the shooting site.

So here is the thing. I've never exported MTS footage before and it seems like FCPX can import it properly. However I have this "camcorder" icon along with the footage, and the export menu are all grey that stops me exporting. Could anyone help me out there? Thanks in advance.

Jack created a new topic ' How to solve the 'flower screen' like this in FCPX 10.0.5?' in the forum. 6 years ago

Hello guys I just got this weird result when imported into FCPX10.0.5. The playback in Finder is perfect, the codec is AVC-Intra and you can see details in the attached pic below.
For silly reasons I cannot upgrade my Mac or FCPX right now(got unfinished job), so the challenge is how to solve this in this version. Any suggestions appreciated!

Congrats and next time you may try to move all your project into your external hd and try to export using another computer before you can solve your computer's problem.

Bought a stupid 4K TV as long as a player, which only supports mp4 format. And there seems no way to exceed 30Mbps in Compressor while dealing with 4K videos. I've also tried QuickTime 7 and MPEG Streamclip, neither of which worked. Has anyone got a solution for 4K mp4 exporting?
