Without exporting a "Master File" and then re-exporting in Compressor or similar, is there a way to adjust the audio prefs in Share options?
by Dave Gage 5 months ago
Unfortunately, it doesn't look possible. I need to do this quickly without exporting as PCM and PR422 and then optimizing in another program, so I will be exporting directly from FCP X 10.3 to upload.
