I'm checking the documentation but I can't find a solution. I have imported multiple media (12 .mov files) and I want to export them as h264/mp4. I can do that one by one but I was looking for a way to do it all in once since I have lots of them. If I select all the media I've imported the file->share menu is all greyed out (except for "Add destination").

Thank you


You can do it directly in Compressor if you're doing nothing but converting.

Add all, Select all, right click [any one] Add Outputs, select output format, Start Batch.

  • what is Compressor? Is it already inside Final Cut Pro? – SF1 Mar 23 '18 at 13:18
  • It's a separate app, but it's what FCP fires off the actual transcoding job to. I was sure when you bought one, you got the other bundled in with it - though I've had mine so long I don't really recall now. Check Applications folder. – Tetsujin Mar 23 '18 at 13:19
  • nope, I don't have it..it's a university mac so they installed final cut pro before giving it to me.. – SF1 Mar 23 '18 at 13:41
  • Ah, pity, you're missing out on a lot of potential power when transcoding. idk how you'd do it directly in FCP as a single task, sorry. – Tetsujin Mar 23 '18 at 13:47
