Well if you are on a Mac another option to look at is Compressor I think. But either way it is more or less the same on all platforms, what I do on windows is Export it in highest quality possible from my editing app. I then import into Squeeze and then pick what ever compressions are needed and hit the Squeeze button and sit back as it crunches the data.

I'm on a Mac and that's right. Compressor comes bundled with Final Cut Studio and does an excellent job. You can also create custom presets once you finish tweaking.

I tried compressor but it spits out images that aren't 16x9. What would you suggest? Also please take a look at this video clip I did it with sorenson squeeze. Not sure how it looks on other computers. www.humanjukebox.tv

The Squeeze version looked pretty good to me. As for compressor I dont know it but my guess is you need to look in the "advanced settings" or what ever they call it and set it to 16:9. It is probably set to 4:3

Thanks. I'll check it as soon as I have a chance.

Also make sure that the resolution of the profile you are using is actually 16:9

Easy way to pick a resolution is pick your width, say 400 and then multiply by 9 and then divide the result by 16. This gives you 225, the Hight ratio, so you would use 400 by 225 for the pixels :)

Hey I know this is a slightly outdated thread but I had one question:

I agree everybody's h.264 encoded videos look great, but when I use Compressor to export my HDV project in h.264 format, all the text is mis-shaped and skewed. I know what I'm doing when it comes to exporting, I'm not sure what the issue is.. does anybody have a guess? Thank you!!!

Make sure you have the correct pixel aspect ratio selected when exporting/compressing. HDV is 1.33 aspect. If you use the wrong setting it can throw things off a bit.
