Apple CompressorOverview

Compressor adds power and flexibility to Final Cut Pro X export. Customize output settings, work faster with distributed encoding, and tap into a comprehensive set of delivery features.


Powerful Encoding for Final Cut Pro


  • Use Compressor to customize encoding settings available in Final Cut Pro.
  • Choose from a wide array of codecs, sizes, frame rates, and other parameters.
  • Save your custom settings in Compressor; they automatically appear in Final Cut Pro.
  • Share settings with other editors, even if Compressor isn't installed on their workstations.

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 and Facebook.
  • Work with a choice of themed menus to encode and burn a DVD or Blu-ray disc.
  • Add chapter markers for discs or podcasts distributed on iPad, iPhone, iPod, or Apple TV.
  • Encode to a broad range of industry-standard formats, such as MPEG-2, H.264, and ProRes.
  • Generate files for HTTP live streaming in a single step.
  • 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.
  • Speed up encoding in Final Cut Pro by choosing a Compressor cluster for output processing.
  • Activate QuickCluster for dynamic configuration of nodes based on available resources.
