Compression Set Up, Can It Be Done?
on Dec 31, 2010 at 4:08:13 am

I have been doing lots of small jobs...mainly on a MacPro but I'm going to be traveling extensively now and I want to know if I can compress this:

___

Canon 5D mkII footage converted to Apple Pro Res 422 1920x1080
Edited in FCP with a maximum of 4 video tracks (some clips with filters applied) and 4 audio tracks and a runtime of 10min

On a:

MacBook Pro 15" 2.8GHz i7 core with a 500GB 7200RPM with 8Gig Ram

___

I cannot do it on my old MacBook Pro 2.6GHz Intel Core 2 Duo with 4Gb Ram

Anyone have experience compressing on a MacBook? I want to pick one up to continue to edit from the road but I don't know the new line will handle something like that.

Any thoughts would HUGELY be appreciated...

Thanks!

Nate

Sorry I meant can that be compressed into h.264 854x480 standard setting...

How could I forget to include what I wanted to compress the original footage to?

Anyway, if anyone has any thoughts at all that'd be great.

Huge thanks!

Have you looked into the Matrox product line? For towers, they make a PCI card - CompressHD...it's super fast encoding to h264 and looks great.

For the Laptop...they have the same functionality built into their I/O devices. Cheapest would be an MXO2 mini with Max.

It's an h264 hardware accelerator, I use it, and love it...it spoils you very quickly.

Hey Jason,

Thanks for noting that. I haven't looked into the Matrox product line but I'm just looking to be as mobile as I can and still compress while I travel instead of waiting to get back to the office.

That sounds pretty cool to have a hardware based accelerator. I'll have to look into it. Thanks!

Nate
