Help Exporting HD Video Using Final Cut Pro - Need Improved Work Flow
on Dec 31, 2008 at 7:23:42 am

Hi there,

I'm just wrapping up my wedding season for 2008 and I'm trying to find a quicker way to compress my videos.

To give you some background, all my videos are shot using the Sony EX1 in HQ 1920 x 1080 at 24p with the run time of the video being about an hour.

I edit my videos in Final Cut Pro then do a final compression using the H.264 codec while keeping the same video size (1920x1080) and frame rate (24p). When I do the compression, it usually takes 20 Hours... Yes 20 Hours!!! Is this normal? Is there a quicker way to compress the video in HD?

Overall, I need the video in it's full size since my clients request a Blu Ray version. It just takes so long.

If someone has a quicker or better work flow to compress 1920 x 1080 videos using Final Cut Pro, please let me know. I'm just not sure if I'm doing it right.

Much appreciated.

Colin

Have you tried MPEG2 compression? Should be considerably shorter.
