    With the latest version of FCPx its possible to select a clip in the viewer and send it to compressor, but is it possible to select more than 1 clip and send those clips to compressor?

    You can’t send several clips separately to Compressor, but you can send a range to Compressor. Just use the Range tool (R key) or use the I and O keys in the timeline to specify a range. Then use the Send to Compressor command.

    I understand the range slect and export. What I want to do is select a number of clips in the viewer and send those to Compressor, but so far FCP only allows one clip at a time to be selected and sent to compressor. I ‘ like to be able to select a group of clips in the viewer and send them as a batch to compressor.

    Do you mean the event? The viewer is where playback is displayed. Called the canvas in 7. You can also open up a dedicated event viewer.

    But no, you can’t batch anything from anywhere.

    Doh ! I meant event browser. I can send one clip at a time from the event browser to Compressor, but I would like to send multiple clips. Seems like I am boxed out of that option.

    Batch export is a big request – at least from the project library. I suppose you could request it from the event browser as well.
