New with the 10.4.8 update to Final Cut Pro X are new, and simplified, export options. In the past, we had a confusing set to choose from, especially when all we wanted to do was save a master file.

Now, as indicated by the screen shot, the default option is to save the file at the location you specify. Other options, such as automatically sending a file to YouTube or Facebook, still exist as part of the Share menu, but creating a master file is now much more straight-forward.

Also, after a file is exported, you can have it automatically open in QuickTime Player, Compressor, or the application of your choice.

Even, if you want, store it in the new Apple TV application.


The keyboard shortcut to export a master file remains the same: Cmd + E.
