What's your final output medium/purpose?

MPEG-4 is a codec, which is not meant for editing, so why do you want to match the sequence settings to the export?

You could export your sequence as a Quick Time Reference, which you then open in MPEG Streamclip to convert to a video file encoded with one of the many MPEG-4 codecs (like .h264, .divx,....).

And I also would like to know what your final output medium is and what distribution you're thinking of.

Not really.
I also have to upload videos to another production house, but they at least gave me the specifics on what kind of file they wanted.

So you have to ask them, what exactly do the want.

Example:

File format/container: .mp4, .mov, .avi, .mkv, ....

VIDEO

Video codec: H263/4, Divx/Xvid, ProRes, DV (CPro), ....
Quality: Best or what...
File size: 10MB or 1GB or 64GB or ....

AUDIO

Audio codec: PCM Uncompressed, MPEG-2 Layer 3 (also called MP3), aac, ....


You might see, that there are many options, and you should know the specifics, they wanna have.
