In FCP 7 it was simple to export only a portion of the sequence. How in the world do I do that in X?

    One simple solution would be to select all in your project and make a compound clip out it.  Then, from the compound clip level, just trim the left and right ends until only the part you want is represented.  Then share/export it.  I am sure there are other ways as well.  Best wishes.

    If you have Compressor 4 then I think you can still export just a selected range of your timeline ... if not, or if you don't have Compresor 4 then you should be able to quickly convert a selected range to a Compound Clip, then right click that and Open in Timeline, then export that timeline (ie the original selection) ... then just step back into the main timline and Undo to get back to the pre-Compound Clip state if necessary.

    • R-Clik on the Project Name, in the Project Index.
    • Select "Duplicate Project"
    • Edit the newly created project to whatever size you want.
    • Export (share) it.
    • Delete the new project if you no longer need it.
