Skill Level Beginner
Compressor is quite the meat grinder: you put video on the front and on the end you get your compressed files. If you do have access to these files it's wonderful, but I strongly encourage you to use your own content rather than necessarily using content that matches exactly what I'm using here. If you do have access to these files, I do want to show you how to set it up. On your media drive, inside of Final Cut Events and Final Cut Projects, you want to take these, two files, these two folders, and put them into the same folders for your Final Cut X, Final Cut Events, and Final Cut Projects.
If you are not using Final Cut X, it's really not important for you to deal with these whatsoever. The other major starting points I use are the Mission Statement and the Transcode Start, and you are going to find all of this stuff in your Exercise Files folder. But again, I am going to tell you, feel free to start with your own content rather than necessarily relying on this. I think it's really very valuable for you to just play and see your own footage being compressed throughout the process.
