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.
In this chapter we are going to talk about filters, not just video filters but audio filters, because there are a variety of new filters inside Compressor 3.0. Here we are not going to talk about all of them, but I will talk about ones that you will probably find the most useful. In the video filter category, we will talk about sharpening and adjusting Gamma, which adjusts the midpoint gray scale of an image. How to add a fade in or a fade out, how to add a watermark, both still and animated; and how to add burned-in timecode to your video? There are also some new audio filters inside Compressor.
I will show you how to add a fade in and a fade out; how to control dynamic range and how to apply peak limiting. We will get ourselves started by taking a look at sharpening.
