HD generation is sweeping the inter-nation, and youtube has followed suit. HD isn't exactly a new feature of youtube, but it has definitely caught on recently. There are a lot of videos/tutorials out there showing you how to render in 720p HD for youtube, so I thought I would add to them and create my own.
This one specifically applies to Final Cut Pro and Express, but it does also apply to any other Quicktime based renderer on mac- essentially all video applications on the mac. This exact method is usually found on the advanced or custom tab on applications like iMovie and Screenflow.
To the point;
- Set your 'in/out' points on the timeline
- Go to 'File > > Export > > Using Quicktime Conversion
- Give it a meaningful name in the dialog box that opens and hit options
- Use the render settings in the screen grab below
OK it all.
If you didn't catch it, see the attached video below.
