Silverlight and Expression Encoder go 1.0

As you've probably heard, Silverlight and Expression Encoder have gone 1.0!

I've got full details on this from a compression perspective in this blog post:

Will there be a Mac version of the encoder?

There aren't any plans for a Mac version.

Of course, Mac encoding tools like Flip4Mac, Episode, and Sorenson Squeeze can encode Silverlight-compatible .WMV files. And since Expression Encoder can add the Silverlight player skins to an existing .WMV file, you could do all your encoding natively, and then add the interactivity and skinning via Expression Encoder in Parallels.

Expression Encdoer does support reading QuickTime source files, so it also works better with a Mac-workflow, even if the encoding gets done on Windows.

It's got a 30-day trial. Check it out!

Oh, not a very nice workflow.

I find it very hard to understand why anybody in this day and age would release an encoder that did not support QuickTime source files. Was this a political or technical decision? What source formats does it support?

Huh? Expression Encoder absolutely does support QuickTime source files. Give it a shot - there's a 30-day free trial.
