About Compressor

Compressor is targeted at video postproduction professionals and compressionists who require high performance and maximum control over the final digital content for DVD authoring, streaming media servers, and wireless devices.

Compressor gives you resizing, cropping, image processing, encoding, and delivery options, and offers batch processing, VBR options, and H.264 encoding. You can also use Droplets and AppleScript, specify and save transcode settings, use filters, specify destinations, and more. Compressor also provides a variety of output formats for Apple devices, DVD, web, CD, and kiosk.

Important: Compressor 4 is designed to work closely with Final Cut Pro X and later and Motion 5 and later and is required for the Send to Compressor feature. All mentions of Final Cut Pro and Motion in this document refer to these versions.
