Hey, I recently got Final Cut Express, but I learnt to use it pretty quickly, and i've made a guitar cover using it, to put on youtube. I'm very happy with how it looks and sounds, however when I export it as a .mov, the video quality decreases tremendously, ruining my footage. Is there anything I can do to stop this?

Also, since Youtube doesn't seem to upload .mov files correctly, I assume i'll need some kind of converter?

Thanks, all help appreciated,

-Sean

Go to file>export>using quicktime conversion
Use quicktime movie, and default settings
Then click on options>settings and change compression type to mpeg-4 (best for youtube)
Then go back and click size and set to HD

YouTube handles .mov files.

You need to do some basic learning, so see my guides which apply to this problem.

Once you have an export that looks good, then upload to YT.

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.
