Recommendations for Compression Software

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, I've got a question about compression software for video.

I wanted to ask what is recommended as a video compressor these days.

 

I use Quicktime Pro's built in feature for making x.264 videos, but find it slow and not always that great at handling gradients, even with grain applied before hand.

I have recently started using Adobe Media Encoder, and feel that it has the best options and results thus far.

 

I know there are options out there that cost lots of money, but wanted to see what the mass majority use.

 

Thanks!

Steve

If you want to know what most people use, I think most people use whatever they have handy. It's just one of those things where you'll get a million opinions on what's best, and everyone has their own way of doing it. My personal approach: use whatever is installed on whatever machine I'm on. :)

I recommend Handbrake. It is super fast and much better quality and easier to use than that PoS Apple Compressor. And it's free! However it only does mp4 (x264).
