By Apple (Apple Inc.)

Compressor integrates tightly with Final Cut Pro to add power and flexibility to your video conversions. A simple interface lets you quickly customize output settings, enhance images, and package your film for sale on the iTunes Store. For even faster conversions, easily set up distributed encoding using other Mac computers.

Advanced Encoding for Final Cut Pro 
• Use Compressor to customize encoding settings for Final Cut Pro
• Save your custom settings in Compressor and they automatically appear in Final Cut Pro
• Set up batch processes to streamline the encoding of large numbers of files 
• Build custom Destinations to combine encoding with additional tasks such as moving or copying files
• Create self-contained Droplets to encode on the desktop with drag-and-drop ease
• Share settings with other editors, even if Compressor isn't installed on their systems 

iTunes Store Package Creation
• Import and organize your movie, trailer, closed captions, and subtitles into an iTunes Store-compliant package for submission to an Apple-certified iTunes delivery partner
• Audition video with any audio, caption, or subtitle to verify sync
• Built-in error detection helps you identify issues with your iTunes Store Package and navigate directly to the source of the issue

Support for Industry Standards
• Encode to a broad range of industry standard formats including MPEG-4, H.264, MXF and ProRes
• Work with a choice of themed menus to encode and burn a DVD or Blu-ray disc
• Generate files for HTTP live streaming in a single step 
• Import Targa, DPX, TIFF, PSD, PNG or OpenEXR image sequences and encode them to any setting

Pristine Format Conversions 
• Convert any file between formats — such as NTSC to PAL, SD to HD or progressive to interlaced video
• Import and manipulate wide color video, then deliver in standard Rec. 601 and Rec. 709 color spaces or in wide Rec. 2020 color space
• Use CABAC entropy multipass H.264 encoding for superior results with hardware-accelerated export on supported systems
• 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 workstations
• Install Compressor on any Mac to activate it as a node for distributed encoding 
• Speed up encoding in Final Cut Pro by choosing a group of shared computers for exporting

System Requirements: OS X 10.11.4 or later, 4GB of RAM (8GB recommended for 4K and 3D titles), OpenCL-capable graphics card or Intel HD Graphics 3000 or later, 256MB of VRAM (1GB recommended for 4K and 3D titles), 931MB of disk space.

Comments and Ratings for Compressor

Pretty Good. (4.3.1)
2/8/2017 12:43:00 AM 5/5 By TechTalkGuy
Compressor is a movie file converter that takes your movie and outputs it as a finished professional movie with many export options to choose from. The power of this incredible app is in the Inspector where you can tweak the settings, save your custom settings to use and reuse. Compressor, along with Final Cut Pro X and Motion (sold seperately) comprise the full suite of high end professional movie applications. Many years ago before the app store was invented, this suite was sold as an all-in-one production workflow system known as Final Cut Studio. I use this app all the time and I could never go back to depending on the presets. Recommended: Yes

it’s great GUI. (4.3.1)

Powerful encoding app for my work.

GPU doing heavy lifting! (4.3)

My nMP is a few years old, but I am impressed with the encoding performance I am getting with the latest version of Compressor. I don’t have any benchmarks to back it up, but pretty sure it cranks far faster than Media Encoder for similar tasks. Absolutely blazes. I don’t use FCPX for a variety of reasons, but am glad that Compressor is up to the challenge of outputting high quality web versions for the videos I work on.

Works well for me (4.3)

I have been using Final Cut X again for awhile now and love it. Had a need to export to various formats in additoin to what Finalu Cut offers. I found Compressors inteface clean, uncluttered and intuitive. After exporting prores 422 from Final Cut I have sent them to compressor. The compressions that I have done were quick! Especially quick on a 2012 MBP. The compressor did an excellent job reducing the file size while retaining quality. The interface is superb. Just the features I need, with other options tucked away. The integration with Finalcut is a further bonus as is the ability to reduce audio or make files for a variety of sources. Glad I got it, just sorry I waited so long. Nice job, Apple.

Horrible, Absolutely Horrible (4.3)

Compressor used to be a great program with lots of power features. This version is impossible to use. It’s slow to open, slow to load in a file (as in several minutes to open a file), makes you dive into menu after menu on things that used to be so easy, and just overall cumbersome. It’s a very watered down version of what compressor used to be missing all of the old attention to detail. Rendering out is even slower (used to be much quicker). Just shows how much apple is moving away from the pro video user base.

Could be better (4.3)

This is the most disappointing companion app for Final Cut Pro X for professional movie production. Basically, compressor allows you to take a movie and export it as a final movie. I just completed a small 35 minute movie in 720p at one of the highest settings that took 12 hours to complete! This is insanely slow. All of my plans for the day are completely ruined because of the slow performance of this app! The inspector is the place to tweak the settings for the hidden export options from each preset! The inspector is the only reason I would recommend this app, but beware of how slow it runs! Buyer Beware!

DO NOT BUY/DO NOT ‘UPGRADE (4.3)
11/21/2016 3:38:00 PM 1/5 By VIDEO PROD
HAVE USED THIS PROGRAM FOR YEARS WITHOUT PROBLEMS. THE CURRENT UPDATE ON OCTOBER 2016 MAKES RENDERING A VIDEO OUT OF FCPX SO SLOW IT IS ALMOST WORTHLESS FOR SOMEONE DOING VIDEOS OF ANY LENGTH OR DOING VOLUME WORK. A 3 HOUR VIDEO THAT USED TO TAKE 1-2 DAYS NOW TAKES A WEEK.

Check your settings carefully (4.3)

I’ve used Compressor for years and loved it more and more with each passing upgrade. This most recent version has soured me to the point that I need to speak up. The new version of compressor features some welcome upgrades, but a lot of them are not rooted in the reality of what most video editors are dealing with on a a day to day basis. Take the new color management tool. Not a bad idea in theory, but in practice the constraint in options leaves it virtually useless for most work. Rec709 to Rec2020? No one needs that and if they do they’re not using compressor for their color work. How about Rec709 Legal Range to Rec709 Full Range? Or 2.4 to 2.2 gamma shifts? The biggest problem I see is that the automatic settings are getting too unwieldy. Gone are the days I can just drop a video in, apply a preset and walk away. I have on more than one occassion seen Compressor select 1-2-1 for the source color profile and completely decimate the color grade of something I’ve been encoding. There’s 5 hours down the drain. Or more recently when I dropped a widescreen (2048x858) video file into Compressor for conversion to Blu-Ray. Prior to this most recent release Compressor would have selected 1080P as my output setting by default. Only after delivery to my client did I fine that in the most recent version of Compressor, the software has determined that 720P would be a much better setting. Clickboxes now fade up and down in the interface. I’m nearly at a loss for how terrible a UX decision this is. I need to work fast. The UI needs to be responsive. Period. Compressor has been a huge time saver in the past, but now I feel I have to watch it like a two year-old.

Stay away!! (4.3)

I’ve looked at this product from arms length for many years thinking it was the solution to my compression needs. It’s absolutely horrible at compression. It’s incredibly slow and does not function anywhere near a tool like it should. If you purchase this, you will be wasting your money.

SO SLOW!!!!! (4.3)

Looks great but it takes double the time to transcode to h264. I am baffled on what is happening and I have tried everything to get the speed that it used to have but no success. I transcode about 6 2-4 hour 1080i timelines from FCPX a week so this is a big deal to have the performance drop to half.
