Export for Web

I am having a very hard time finding a good way to export for the web. When I use what Compressor has I just don't like how the size is so small. I am very new to FCP and video production in general. If someone could help me out that would be great. I know there might be some questions I would need to answer to make this easier for you. So if that is the case ask away.

Thanks,
Chris

For starters, what is the actual problem- file size? Playback? Resolution?

If you can be more specific about what you're trying to do, and how you're doing it, and what results you've had so far, I'm sure you can get some useful tips here.

I think what my friend told me has solved my problems.

I've been wondering the same thing. What's the best way to export my HD videos shot with my XH-A1, so that they look good, but are small in size?

It all depends where on the web you want to put it, there are a lot of different options.

Keep it as a quicktime? or flash video?

Everybody talks about youtube, but can't understand why anybody would even think about compressing their beautiful images, only for it to be hashed up in a flash massacre of youtube's own compressors. Down to 15fps and pixelated to death.

If you really want to show off your HD footage on the web, go with www.vimeo.com and keep your frame size the same, just use the H.264 codec to keep the file size down. Vimeo shows it in it's original high def 720p video at 24fps and it loads almost as fast as youtube.

Here's a few Q&A's to get your video prepared for it though....

hope that helps.

Two words: Big Audience

Well, i don't think that's necessarily true, Youtube is clearly the most universally known platform for internet video, and has BIG traffic, but it doesn't have a captive audience are already there...waiting for your uploaded video. The views are not entirely generated internally.

You upload your video, and 9 times out of 10 then re-link it from your own website or other places that are generating traffic e.g myspace. The majority of youtube's views are click throughs from other websites, not internally from their search facility.

Anywhere on the internet is BIG audience. Youtube just branded itself right.

I didn't imply this. YouTube is what it is- blunt compression, sure, but also free, easy to use, well-supported, and known by everyone. For those advantages, YouTube is unmatched. It serves it's purpose for amateur and professional filmmakers alike, and doesn't necessarily have anything to do with creating high-quality web video (but that will obviously help if you do use YouTube.)
