Video Compression for the Web
Video compression is required to post our projects to the web. In this Final Cut Studio tutorial by Larry Jordan, you will learn common video compression terms, how to diagnose and fix compression problems, how to export from Final Cut Pro with the best quality, how to optimize web video, how to create files for YouTube or other services, and how to improve the look of your video when compressing for DVD. You will also learn how to automate this process using Compressor Droplets.
Using Apple's Compressor software, this session provides specific examples of how to compress video for the web, DVD, and mobile devices. This session also illustrates how to test your compression settings.
This video does not discuss transcoding media between formats for editing.
This episode is designed for a reasonably experienced editor who is strugging to figure out how to make their compressed media look better on the web. This title discusses both SD and HD video.
