Exporting for Screenings

If you are submitting for a DCP, you will need to provide the post team with an uncompressed file. Codecs like Apple ProRes and DNxHR are ideal. Compressed codecs like H.264 can not be accepted. Below, you'll find instructions to help export in the proper format.

Check your sequence settings!

Confirm that you are using your intended resolution, frame rate, and Audio Settings in your sequence settings before we move on to your export settings. (Note: your resolution and frame rate may vary from those in the screenshots)
