Printing to Video

Unlike the Edit to Tape command, the Print to Video command doesn’t allow you to set
In or Out points on your tape. Instead, you manually press record whenever you want
to begin recording on tape. This is considered a crash record.

You can automatically add leader and trailer elements, such as color bars and tone, a
countdown, a slate, and a black trailer, to your movie. You can also loop your movie
as many times as you want, if you want to output your movie multiple times on the
same tape.

Tip: You can use the Print to Video command to output to any external video monitor,
regardless of whether a deck is connected. This can be useful if you want to use
Final Cut Pro to output a looping clip or sequence to an external monitor for a
tradeshow demo or video installation.
