    Can FCP output raw uncompressed DV?
    Can FCP output raw uncompressed DV video from an edited project to a tape deck? If not, what is the next closest uncompressed format? The purpose is to get my final edited sequence inserted into an Avid editing system as part of a larger documentary.

    I'm no expert, but from what I could find out, DV video on tape (DV, DVCPRO, DVCPRO50) always has some kind of compression applied.

    I am wondering how FCP recognizes the tape export codec when you do File --> Edit to Tape...? That might be some detail to look into.

    I suspect your uncompressed options will not involve tape but instead creating a file on a hard drive. You'll need to find out what file formats the Avid system can import, and if it needs a PC formatted drive or can it handle a Mac formatted drive.

    Here are the file ideas. Under FCP --> File --> Export you could use Compressor options or QuickTime options:

    Using Compressor.. --> Advanced Format Conversions --> 8-bit Uncompressed NTSC.

    Using QuickTime Conversion... --> QuickTime Movie --> Settings --> Compressor Type: Uncompressed 8-bit 4:2:2.

    When asking questions, post the version of your software. You'll receive better answers.

    Please post your results to the thread as it is good feedback.
