Powerful Encoding for Final Cut Pro

Time-Saving Encoding Workflow

  • Experiment freely with encoding options, using real-time feedback in the Preview window.
  • Find exactly the setting you need in just a few clicks in the updated settings library.
  • Set up batch processes to streamline the encoding of large numbers of files.
  • Build batch templates to combine encoding with tasks such as moving or copying files.
  • Create self-contained Droplets to encode on the desktop with drag-and-drop ease.

Industry-Standard Encoding Support

  • Use one-step settings for Apple devices and websites such as Vimeo, YouTube, and Facebook.
  • Work with a choice of themed menus to encode and burn a DVD or Blu-ray disc.

  • Import Targa, DPX, TIFF, PSD, or PNG image sequences and encode them to any setting.
  • Tap into advanced encoding features for adding closed captioning, metadata, and more.

Pristine Format Conversions

  • Convert any file from its source format to another format, such as NTSC to PAL or SD to HD.
  • Clean up and customize your content using image filters, a timecode overlay, and watermarks.
  • Speed up video, slow it down, or adjust the frame rate to make the duration match a runtime.

Distributed Encoding

  • Save time by distributing encoding work among multiple cores and workstations.
  • Install Compressor on any Mac to activate it as a cluster node for distributed encoding.
