Install Share Destinations

When installing the Mac App, you are prompted to install Share Destinations for exporting from Final Cut Pro directly to your projects. 

  • H264 - creates small compressed media files with the timeline's native resolution and reduces upload time. Suited for reviewing.

  • Source - creates high-quality media files that use the exact same codec and resolution as your project. Suited for exchange of source files for further processing and final delivery.

If you were not prompted to install these, click the Menu Bar > click the gear icon > Preference. From here, click Install Share Destinations.

NOTE: There is a bug in Final Cut Pro where it will forget newly created Share Destinations unless you make another change to the list before restarting FCP. Creating another new share destination manually will do the trick. This video will show you how.
