After the video editing is finished, it's time to publish your work. Whether you're publishing it to a the Internet, YouTube, DVD disc, or your Apple TV, you'll need to shrink the final file size of your work, and Compressor is the perfect tool for the job.

Video compression is always a battle between file size and visual quality. But it doesn't always have to be a trade-off. Once you understand how video compression works, it's easier than you might think to make great looking video at amazingly small file sizes.

In just over 2 hours of tutorial-videos, lead educator Michael Wohl walks you through the ins & outs of using Compressor to squeeze the best possible quality out of your videos while shrinking their file sizes to the limits of today's compression technology.

The theory of compression is fully covered here. You'll learn how keyframes work, explore the differences between constant bit rate (CBR) verses variable bit rate (VBR) compression, and learn when to use multi-pass instead of single-pass compression.

But this isn't just a theory class ... the practical aspects of compression are also discussed. For example, this tutorial-video even shows you how to optimize your videos for upload to YouTube, as well as devices including the iPhone and Apple TV.

It's important to ensure your videos look as good as they possibly can, regardless of the places you choose to deploy them. This tutorial-video will give you the skills you need to ensure that happens.

This is a comprehensive tutorial, but you don't need to watch the entire program. Use N.E.D.'s detailed menu system and search functions to quickly find topics that interest you.
