Web Export workflow

Hello, I'm testing the waters in a move back to Avid and I'm wondering what the fastest way to export for the web is.

My usual method is to send to Apple Compressor, apply a saved setting, and let the multicore processing take over. But reference quicktimes from Avid don't seem to be getting along with compressor.

Do any of the built in Avid export techniques take advantage of multicore processing during export?

Avid comes with Sorenson Squeeze and interfaces nicely with that. Perhaps you can modify your workflow to utilize Squeeze instead of Compressor, which is more or less, designed to work with Final Cut Pro.

I don't know if Squeeze takes better advantage of multiple CPU cores, but I do know it can utilize your graphics card GPU to accelerate exports.

What issues are you seeing with Compressor? It seems that if MoviePlayer can open the reference file, then it should be fine. Are you on Mavericks?

download the x264 quicktime codec:

Then export directly out of Avid using single pass "quality based" with automatic keyframes and datarate.

This produces excellent visual results, exports faster than any other method of creating H264, and also uses all your cores (or, at least most of them).
