If you’ve selected one or more items in the Timeline, or defined a region of the Timeline
using In and Out points, the commands in the Render Selection submenu operate only
on the selection. If nothing is selected and no In or Out points have been defined, the
entire sequence is rendered.
Â Both: Renders both the video and audio of the selected region of the sequence.
Â Video: Renders only the video items in the selected region of the sequence.
Â Audio: Renders only the audio items in the selected region of the sequence.
You can restrict which segments are rendered by only selecting particular render status
categories. For example, if you want to render all item-level audio segments between
the sequence In and Out points, choose the Item Level option (so there’s a checkmark
next to it), deselect all the others, then choose Sequence > Render Selection > Audio.
If you’ve added a transition or an effect to a clip and want to render just that part of
the sequence, use the Render Selection command.
Video and audio render
categories that are enabled
have a checkmark.
Rendering and Video Processing Settings
To render a section of a sequence:
Do one of the following:
Â In the Timeline, select one or more clips or transitions.
Â In the Timeline or Canvas, set In and Out points for the area that you want to render.
If necessary, choose Sequence > Settings, click the Render Control tab, then choose
quality settings for rendered effects and select which effects are and are not rendered.
Choose Sequence > Render Selection, then choose which kinds of render segments
you want to render from the submenu.
Render status categories that are enabled have a checkmark next to them.
Choose Sequence > Render Selection, then choose a render command from the

If your project has not yet been saved, Final Cut Pro prompts you to save your project.
A status window appears showing the rendering progress. Click Cancel to stop rendering.
