Quicktime Compressor
on Feb 4, 2012 at 1:15:41 am

I've been playing and testing in FCP to Export using Quicktime.

When I do (to Quicktime Movie) I notice on the Size dropdown menu there are these two options.

1920 x 1080 HD

and

HD 1920 x 1080 16:9

Whats the difference?

And, if there is a difference... which should i use if my final target is QT movies that are downloaded and played from hard drive?

Thanks in advance,

Jimmy

Hi

1920 x 1080 HD is the same as HD 1920 x 1080 16:9. Only difference is the aspect ratio. 16:9 should be used if you have applied lightbox in your footage. I would say go with the first option to get the full frame of the shot where as if you use 16:9 your actual frame will be cropped.

It's better to apply both profile. It's just drag and drop in compressor. See which one you like.

Hope it helps
