I'm hoping to get some professional opinions. We're looking to either upgrade from Media Cleaner 5 or maybe get other software. I'm new to this subject but I've learned a lot. I've read through the threads and Cleaner, Episode and Sorenson seem to be the top runners.
We're on a G5 MAC, with FCP 5 and Compressor. Most of our output is for DVD, Power Point (on PC) and a few web videos. My problem with Compressor is that it wont give me full screen mpeg1 for Power Point, and I can't get wmv's out of it. (We do a lot of Power Point presentations on PCs.) It wont let me specify the dimension for mpeg1, which I thought was standardized at 320x240. But, the old editor here says his old version of Media Cleaner software WILL let him specify dimensions other than 320x240 for mpeg1. hmmm. Granted, his computer system is about 7 yrs old. (a Mac OS9?) Will the newer version of Cleaner let you do that too?
Should we upgrade the Cleaner (who makes it now?) or go with one of the other softare packages?
Thank you so much for your time. This forum is very helpful.
Thanks Daniel. Can you tell me if mpeg1 (in Episode or any other current compression software)still allows you to specify dimensions? The mpeg1 in Compressor will not-it doesnt even give you a dimesnion field in the inspector palette. Thanks!
