    well that's your one option...
    other option is to use compressor and export as a quicktime container or something like that...it's in your options, the only other one that's called quictime...

    there is another way, but i'm not at work right now where you can directly export from final cut...

    regardless, you're going to have to use flip4mac studio pro to make wmv's anyways...but you can do it straight out of quicktime...i'll check tomorrow at work for ya..

    oooooo....dude, buy it or acquire it...it's definately a must have...
    Flip4Mac studio Pro let's you export wmv's from anything that can export a quicktime file (after effects, fcp, motion, compressor, quicktime pro....)

    it might be awhile cause OT is blocked from work, but if you ca find this software, do it, it'll make your life easier...

    okay...well after you install flip4mac you got 3 ways to make wmv.s

    1) Qucktime: File > Export, then in the drop down list choose "Movie to Windows Media" and set your options...

    2) FCP: File > Export > Using Quicktime Conversion, then choose Format> Windows Media

    3) Compressor from FCP: File > Export > Using Compressor, then choose Quicktime Component, then choose Windows Media from the list...
