Compression Book to buy?
on May 27, 2008 at 3:03:49 am

I am in desperate need of help with working out the settings I need to use when compressing clips.
A book that can talk me through different setting techniques for resizing and compressing my video clips. At the moment I am reading every forum to do with Sorenson Squeeze, Episode Pro, After Effects, Photoshop CS3 and Final Cut Pro.
My work flow is - resizing and / or compressing clips for the web, dvds and tv.
They are normally asking for Flash, QT and Mpeg-4s.
I know there is not one "all in one setting" but what book can I buy that will be able to teach me the things I need to know in order to do these things with ease and confidence oh and SPEED!

Hope this all makes sense..

It's a bit out of date but this is a great book:

Otherwise, working through the posts here is your best bet.

Thanks for that.
Sometimes you just need someone to say which book or what ever to get. A lot of info out there, it can bend ones brain a little at times.
Thanks again!!

It's a DVD-ROM tutorial and it's specific to Compressor but that may be useful to you if you're going the FCP/Compressor route.

This DVD is for Squeeze 5

not to schill my own book, but i did just have a book on compression published by Peachpit called Real World Video Compression. I think the cheapest price on its on Amazon right now:

Brian's Ripple Training is great by the way - if you are specifically using Compressor, I suggest trying it out.
