Compression for Film Fest, and I'm in trouble now!
on Nov 27, 2012 at 7:50:54 pm

Hello All,
I am looking for some quick advice. I have a short film that is going to be projected on a large theater screen. I have edited in FCP, 1080p 30fps. I need to know a quick setting in compressor that will give me good quality. I don't have time to download and learn any new programs. This sucker has to be ready in two hours and at this point I am stuck with compressor. The guy will be broadcasting of his laptop so he should have a lot of flexibility in format.
I used apple pro res high qaulity, and got a good product. I also got a 10 GIG file for a 6 minute vid.
Any other suggestions?

Geoff

Quick, hire a new guy and blame this on him.

Playing off a laptop, Into what kind of projector system, is the question. Mpeg2 (DVD format) may be the most bullet-proof, but makes high def problematical. H.264 or MPEG4 is my go-to choice, but again, what kind of source does the projector take?

Hey,
Thanks a lot man. I'll look into spreading out the blame. I tried H.264, and will go with it if I have to. It looks pretty bad though. Thanks for the tip on the MPEG 4. I am going to give that a try!! I guess I'll just have to suffer through whatever happens, and not use those free tickets to the filmfest!!

Hope things went okay. You can tell them that Brian Mailer did it and he has been fired.
