So as we come here to Apple's Compressor 4, you may be asking yourself, "why am I even using it?"…You are using Compressor to do one of two things:…One is you are going to take video on its raw form and change its flavor.…You are going to change it from one large file to another large file, and we are…going to talk later in this title about why you'd want to do such a thing.…And the other big use of it is to take large video and make it small.…You can take a look here out in the Finder.…I've got a very large video.…It's half a gigabyte.…I took it down to about ten megabytes using Compressor.…
