Custom codec for Apple /FCP Compressor
on Dec 2, 2009 at 4:18:54 am

Hello, I am just starting on FCP Compressor (version 3.0.5), and received a custom droplet to use for a codec I've been assured will provide me with excellent results. Being a compressor novice, I have no clue how to implement the droplet and create the custom codec on my computer. Can somebody please help me?

The droplet has the following information:
Format: Video
Width: 720
Height: 480
Pixel aspect ration: NTSC CCIR 601/DV
Crop: None
Padding: None
Frame rate 29.97
Frame Controls: Automatically selected: Off

I've got a Power Mac G5, OS X 10.5.8,
The file I want to convert is
Duration 5:18,
Channel Count 2,
Total bit rate 32,622

I'm trying to get the file to less than 80mb, in FLV with Maximum Quality for a very particular (picky) client, to run on the internet.

Thanks for your help.

I'm not sure I understand your problem 100%, but if it's merely an issue of getting the droplet to work, it's basically just a mini app. Drag the master file into the droplet to open and run the encode. I like to work with them stashed in my dock for a quick drag-and-drop encode.
