Video compression is essential to all media today, from social media to broadcast to streaming. This webinar is designed for everyone who wants to learn how to compress their media files using Apple Compressor 4.4. It covers all the basics of audio and video compression using the application.

Join host, Larry Jordan, as he illustrates:

Shooting and editing are just the first part of the production process. If you screw up compression, all the hard work that went before is lost. This session explains what you need to know to make your video look great.

In this short video excerpt, Larry Jordan explains how to modify audio compression settings for either music or voice.

    In last week’s Compressor 4 webinar, you mentioned for social media, the presets were just fine. You also mentioned Single Pass was all that was needed. Was the Single pass statement for mpeg4 only or do need to switch it on the QT HD 720p under Video Sharing Services also? Thanks.

      Great question. When creating H.264 or H.265 video, choose single pass. When creating any other format, let this on multiples. For the default settings in Video Services, leave it at the default setting.
