I, personally, do not recommend outputting system sounds through your Kona as any volume change you make can effect volume input and outputs of Final Cut. AJA has taken steps to make sure that this do

Yes it is possible with Raylight Mac and Quicktime Pro. You make the Raylight links and then export them from QTpro to whatever format you like. http: dvfilm.com raylight mac

printing Final Cut Plugins

That's what I figured. I wound up nesting the sequences with color correction and batch exporting. Apple should address this. There should be a button that turns off color correction universally and a
