Thread: Fcp To Avid???

  1. #1

    Default Fcp To Avid???

    Will an Avid editing system open up a Final Cut Pro Movie file?

    by that I mean when I go to file > export > quicktime movie > make movie self contained

    will an avid editing system be able to open that file like it would any other?

    Thanx

    That depends on the codec you pick and also whether it's going Mac to Mac or Mac to PC.

    You'll need to use an Avid codec or a generic codec like animation or sorenson.
