Best Compression App?
on May 20, 2014 at 4:21:26 pm

I've tried PAVTUBE, ProxyMill and a few others and all seem to have their own problems compressing and delivering what I need, simple things like recovering time code from original file.

Whats a good fast compression software for Sony EX1 Camera BPAV files, GoPro MP4, Sony FS700 AVCHD to compress ProResLT, with original file name, TimeCode.

I can't afford Episode and I've tried a few $39 - $200 including ProxyMill but ran in to problems working with FCP 7 in 10.6.8, strange problems that make the developer scratch his head.

I'm a week behind and need a good solid solution that will include timecode, import properly in to FCP 7 on 10.6.8, may upgrade osx to 10.8.6 as recommended by those still using FCP 7.

MPEG Streamclip has never failed me!

MPEG STREAMCLIP doesn't work with MXF nor AVCHD...

There isn't, that I've been able to find, one best program. I use a combination of Apple Compressor, DaVinci Resolve and After Effects. (and every once in a while, Sorenson Squeeze and Adobe Media Encoder). And when it's easier, Log and Transfer or batch export in FCP 7. Some of these are slow and it's best to leave a batch running overnight. Resolve has a bit of a learning curve but is surprisingly capable with the inclusion of LUTs and can be quite fast with the proper set up.
