Instructions for FMA Screen/Web Channel from Computers in Post Production Lab

  1. Export a full-quality Quicktime file of your movie (in FCP: File-Export-QuickTime Movie). Be sure the Make Movie Self-Contained box is checked. Name your file like this: TITLE OF YOUR WORK_YOUR NAME. Save it to your personal hard drive.
  2. Drag your File from your hard drive onto the blue and orange QL icon in the dock called Label Quicktime Movies. This will add a list of annotations to your file to enable easy sorting.
  3. Open your Quicktime file in the Quicktime Player application and click on the Window menu. Select Show Movie Properties. This will open a window with information about your movie.
  4. At the bottom of the window is a list of Annotations. This is information that will be stored along with your movie in the Quicktime file. Double-click in the “Value” field next to each annotation and enter your information. If a category doesn’t apply to your movie, leave the default text in place. See below for further information on the copyright field.
  5. Export a compressed version of your movie using the Compressor preset H.264 for iPod video and iPhone 640×480. To do this:
    • Open the Compressor application.
    • Click Job in the menu bar, then New Job With File.
    • Select the Quicktime movie you just created on your hard drive.
    • Click Target in the menu bar, then New Target With Setting.
    • In the Apple folder, choose Apple Devices, then H.264 for iPod video and iPhone 640×480.
    • Then Click the Add button. Next, click Target – Destination – Other… and choose a location to save the file on your hard drive.
    • Click Submit.
    • Leave the filename as it is and click Submit again.
    • You can monitor the progress of Compressor by clicking on the Batch Monitor icon.


  6. When Compressor is finished, copy both your Quicktime file and your compressed file (.m4v) to the appropriate folders on your class hard drive or the Diamond Screen Festival hard drive, if submitting work to the festival in the spring.
