episode 4.2.2 vs Squeeze
on Jan 24, 2008 at 1:30:46 pm

hello...

asking for your professional opinion.

our company wants to buy software to export movies for the web as as professional
tv formats.

We're using FCP 6.0.2, in combination with Compressor 3.0.1
and our Motion Graphics team works with AE CS3

I'm using compressor a lot to do batchexports, with flip4mac installed.

But now we want to do flv's as well and people came up with Sorenson Squeeze,
while the other option (my preference) is Episode.

Does anyone have practical advice of which to choose.

I heard that episode integrates with a plug-in with compressor ( i like)
but does it integrate with fcp export as well ( and what about integrating with quicktime pro.
And of course which one does better job making flv's

hope you can help me with a little info on this topic

greatings, maurik

Without hesitation I'd recommend Episode over Sorenson. It's a far more fully featured, capable, advanced and higher quality application than Squeeze.

Both applications use the VP6 codec for Flash, obviously, but Episode will deliver higher quality due to its superior preprocessing filters.

I'd thought I'd mention Episode is up to version 4.4.1.

I beta test both apps. Squeeze is easier to use for some but Episode is incredibly feature rich and flexible.

All you need is provided with Episode, the online help is very good and explains what all of the functions, including the advanced filters, do.
I think you'll find operating the application very simple. If you can find your way around FCP then Episode will be a 'walk in the park'.

Of course if there's something you can't find any info on, then you've got us all here at the Cow!
