2, Hit “Format” bar to choose output format. Here, you can choose “Final Cut Pro > Apple ProRes 422 (HQ) (*.mov)”.

Tip: Click the “Settings” button and set proper video/ audio parameters. My advice is to set the video size, bitrate and fame rate to be exactly as the footages so that you will suffer least quality degradation. For example, when the video is shot at 1920*1080, 5mbps, 30fps, you could set Size-1920*1080, Bitrate-original, Frame rate-30. If you would like to use default settings, simply skip this step.
