Please forgive me if this has already been dealt with, but I could not find it searching in the forums.
I have 1280x1020 mp4 files that I am trying to upload to Vimeo. Before I upload them I want to return them to 16x9 aspect ratio. So I am trying to find a setting in Compressor that will output a 1280x720 mp4 that maintains the HD quality but compresses the file at least a little bit.
I've used the HDV 720p50 setting, at it corrects the aspect ratio, but it takes a .mp4 file that is 154 MB and outputs a .mov file that is 1.38 GB.
I've used the "H.264 for Apple TV" setting but that re-sized the file to 960 x 540.
If anyone knows how to find the correct setting, or could point out where I am making a mistake I could really use some help.
