Hi Nathan, if you want to compress your videos out from FinalCutPro, you can either use Quicktime Codecs directly built-in, third-party QuicktimeComponents or export them from FCP with DV or Apple Pixlet and then use another program to encode.
IMHO Quicktime for most things is the worst solution. If you take Apple ASP-mpeg4 it´s just incredibly bad quality and no options, Apple H.264/AVC mpeg4 is better but still worse than others. You can take the Divx or 3ivx or the x264 Quicktime Component, but none of them worked well for me (BTW i´m talking about MacOS X). Divx gives you .divx files not mp4. 3ivx not sure it works with Quicktime 7, x264 component isn´t stable and bad results. so i think best is to export and encode outside of FCP using OpenSource codecs or any other better one. for mac i recommend: D-Volution, ffmpegX, MPEG Streamclip. for fairly good iPod - Movies iSquint is good too. --- In firstname.lastname@example.org, Nathan Miller <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> wrote: > > I work in FCP... > how do I get a 10 to 12 min bicycle sidewalk under > 50MB!! > IF you can work this I will hook up up!! > > --- Steve Garfield <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> wrote: > > > Did you change the title of this post from > > "Rocketboom in widescreen?" > > to "Compression..." > > > > If you did, by doing that it makes the content of > > your email hard to > > decipher. > > > > By reading your question, in context with what I > > think is the post you > > are referring to, you are asking for more > > information on today's > > Rocketboom. > > > > Am I right or totally off base? > > > > On Feb 21, 2006, at 12:36 PM, Nathan Miller wrote: > > > > > Yeah... > > > this is the videoblogging group... > > > everyone wants to know... > > > what is the cocktail! > > > > > > I am bleeping lost!!! > > > > > > Nahtan Miller > > > www.bicycle-sidewalk.com > > > > > > > > > > > > > > > Yahoo!
