Creating and producing a great audio or video file is just half of the equation; the other half is compressing finished files for smooth, fast distribution over a variety of media, from websites to iPhones. In Compressor 3 Essential Training, instructor Larry Jordan shows how to use Apple Compressor 3.0 to export and compress Final Cut Pro, LiveType, Motion, and Soundtrack Pro files for use on DVDs, Apple devices, and the web. Exercise files accompany the tutorials.
Hi, this is Larry Jordan and welcome to Compressor 3.0. What we will cover in this title is basic compression terminology. Now, I will show you common destinations that you need to create to compressed files for and we will discuss bit budgeting, which is especially useful when you are creating DVD's. I will highlight the new features inside version 3.0, so you can go there first, if you are familiar with Compressor 2.0 and just want to get what is new. We will explore the totally revised interface within Compressor 3.0, but then I will create a standard depth DVD workflow, so that if you are creating a DVD of your videos, you can just go here for a cookbook approach to how to make it work.
Then I will show how to customize the presets, settings and destinations and the other choices that we have inside Compressor. We will illustrate some of the new filters that are shipping with Compressor 3.0 and illustrate how to automate it so it becomes even easier to use. Finally one of the new features is being able to share compression either across multiple computers or multiple processors inside a single computer. Finally, if all you want is just the facts and forget everything else, we provide some Cookbooks that give you step-by-step on how to create videos for say YouTube or high definition DVD or downsampling or cropping, all contained inside the Cookbook.
There is a lot to cover. There is a lot that is new with this application. So let us get ourselves started.
