Compression for FCP Studio Pro
on Mar 1, 2007 at 7:40:02 pm

On a Duel G-5, 3GB Ram, FCP 5.1, I have completed a client "KenBurns" FCP sequence(41 Min). Exported to Compressor Mpeg-2/2 pass - aiff settings. In video work I use these settings. The batch fails in compressor (Three Times). I then did a quicktime conversion and sent to sorenson Squeeze 4. Mpeg2 settings and produced a mess, garbled image. Recompress on compress. I have now dropped a new and clean quicktime .mov(via FCP seq>file>Export>QuickTime Movie...) back into FCP timeline and rendering. Big surprise as I don't know what will happen next. The suspense is killing me. I have completed 100's of video productions. This slide show is possessed. But fear not, I endure. Made a pretty sequence and .mov replay is beauty. Need to get it into FCP Studio on a completed menu. This compression problem has taken 24 hours at this point. Thanx in advance for any ideas.

For this type of video and encoding to MPEG-2, I would recommend either BitVice or Episode.

Charles - Tanx for the quick return. Went and looked at the sites. I will look further at these tools as the upgrades I buy now are looking HD related, which they are. Coming to customers at a home theater near you soon. As for today, I will proceed. When I get tired of Coffee And donuts on this one, I'll buy. Thanx, Wayne

[Wayne Williams] "Exported to Compressor"

Have you tried saving as a Quicktime Self Contained and opened that in Compressor rather than Export to Compressor?
I've heard others bumping into odd things with Export to Compressor on certain sequences. I wonder if it's something about one of the stills you're using. Doing Quicktime Self Contained (I know, more disc space and more time) might beat the problem though.

Hi, I shot a bunch of doc footage using 24p in an HV20 over the summer in the Middle East. A friend sent me a great set up for Compressor using ProRes but it seems as if I need to drag the setting to each clip individually -- and I've got about 300 of them! This has got to be a stupid question, but I can't figure out how to assign the setting to a group of clips??
