After editing your own movies on Final Cut Pro, chances are you want to upload them on your website for presenting your introduction or promoting your
services/products. If you are in the situation, you will need to convert ProRes to FLV, which is widely used for online video websites. So what's fastest and lossless way to convert ProRes files to FLV? This article will show you the detailed workflow.
Before having a smooth video uploading, something you should know:
1. YouTube can only support a few of video formats:
.MOV, .MPEG4, .AVI, .WMV, .MPEGPS, .FLV, 3GPP, WebM
2. By default, you can upload videos that are 15 minutes long. YouTube won't accept videos that are longer than 15 minutes.
3. Uploading YouTube server Reject 100MB long File
From above, the first point we can get that YouTube can't support ProRes files directly. What you need to do is to convert ProRes to YouTube supported video formats first. Plus, since YouTube won't accept videos that are longer than 15 minutes and we therefore need to split your video clips into multiple smaller parts to fit the YouTube limit. (Of course, Google Support has provided a solution yet for uploading videos longer than 15 minutes to YouTube, you can learn more here, but a bit complex.) Here we offer you a simple way to convert and upload ProRes videos to YouTube without any limit.
