Do you have in and out points set on the sequence?

Actually, my thought was that you had in and out points on there (or at least an out point) that was causing the export to not export the entire sequence....

What version of FCS do you have?

Hmm, Another question - is it dropping the last 10 minutes, or is it just 10 minutes shorter then the sequence claims it to be (ie: the sequence shows 1:45 min length but the actual length (without loosing any footage) is 1:35 min)?

Are you compressing on export? If you are, have you tried just doing an export without changing the codec to H.264 - basically a full export of the sequence at the sequences settings - and see if the video is all there? If it is, then there is something wrong with your workflow on exporting. Honestly, I NEVER use the conversion within FCP - I always do conversion with compressor (after exporting from FCP, not a send to compressor) or something like mpegstreamclip.

yeah the last 10 minutes of the movie is missing which is crucial for what im doing.

i go to send to and select compressor from there. i will need to try the export to h.264 in the sequence settings tomorrow as i have to leave my Mac now. i tried quicktime movie and conversion in the export and neither seem to work is it just quicktime movie that you use to export?

sending to compresor has worked as the whole video and sound is all on on a mpeg 4 format which is a 1280x720 which is fine on some tvs but i want 1080, i cant find one in compressor that will do that size or have i missed something.

Honestly, I never use send to compressor - it's not a terribly reliable way to get footage from FCP to compressor - you can do a google search and find all kinds of people that have had issues with it.

I don't use export using quicktime conversion - I just do Export -> Quicktime Movie which will export it to a quicktime movie using the codec specified in the sequence settings (ie: ProRES422), then you can take that file into several different conversion packages to output whatever you want.

If you want a 1920x1080 mp4, you'll probably have to specify custom settings within compressor for that resolution - my guess is the preset in Compressor is geared for export to Apple TV which only supports a max rez of 1280x720.

I too have had issues with the Send To Compressor option, and I rarely use Quicktime Conversion. The best thing to do is export as regular Quicktime Movie and from that one full quality file you can make other versions in Compressor.
