Export/Import FLV from/to Final Cut Express

Summary: Have trouble importing FLV files into Final Cut Express for further editing? Fortunately, there is an easy way to fix the issue. Let’s find it out here.

I am trying to import FLV files into Final Cut Express, but the program can’t directly ingest the file. Then I try to export some FLV video from Final Cut Express, but there is no FLV any more. Should I find a way to convert them into something that Final Cut Express is happy with? 

As you know that Final Cut Express is a video editing tool, quite a few people try to import FLV videos to Final Cut Express but fail, since we cannot import FLV files into Final Cut Pro/Final Cut Express directly.

After editing your own movies on Final Cut Express, you may want to put them on your website for presenting your introduction or promoting your services/products. For users with the older version of FCE, it is easy to export FLV by choosing File > Export > Using QuickTime Conversion. However, if you could not find Flash FLV as output format from FCE, you may need a FCE to FLV converter to get Flash videos.
