Got the FCP to YouTube solutions, don’t hesitate to make consider of reduce time on uploading! Final Cut Pro X has the ability to upload directly to YouTube (after all the rendering), but there aren’t any custom options for the YouTube upload, and the videos it creates are huge, taking 10+ hours to upload a video in about 4GB approximately.

Anyway, FCP is a professional NLE application, so it’s not surprised to see the compression speed is relatively slow.
