Seamless integration with Final Cut Pro.

A simple interface and intuitive controls make Compressor the perfect companion for customised encoding with Final Cut Pro.

Support for industry standards.

With support for a wide range of popular device outputs as well as professional video and audio formats, Compressor expands on the encoding options built into Final Cut Pro.

HEVCNew

Export video in the High Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC) format to create high-quality files that are up to 40 per cent smaller than those encoded as H.264. Adjust image quality parameters to optimise your output, then save your HEVC export setting and access it directly in Final Cut Pro.

HDRNew

Compressor supports High Dynamic Range (HDR) export to deliver incredibly realistic images for both batches and iTunes Store packages. Deliver in Rec. 2020 PQ or Rec. 2020 HLG, and easily convert HDR to Standard Dynamic Range (SDR) output.

360 VR ExportNew

Compressor supports monoscopic and stereoscopic 360° video export in a wide range of formats and frame sizes. Easily share 360° video directly to YouTube, Facebook and Vimeo with industry‑standard spherical metadata embedded in the files.

Encoding Video for Apple Devices

A variety of presets make it easy to deliver content for Apple devices — including iPhone, iPad and Apple TV. The inspector clearly identifies supported Apple devices, and you can modify any preset to get the perfect file for your final delivery.

MXF Encoding

Create MXF files with a wide collection of codecs, including AVC‑Intra, D‑10/IMX, ProRes and XDCAM HD. Adjust parameters and choose from a variety of frame rates and resolutions.

Web Sharing and Disc Burning

Upload files to popular video websites, including YouTube, Vimeo and Facebook. You can also choose from a set of menu templates to create basic Blu-ray discs and DVDs directly from Compressor.*

Broad Format Support

Quickly set up encoding jobs for a broad range of industry-standard formats, including MPEG‑2, H.264, QuickTime, MXF and more. Use the advanced features of Compressor to add closed-caption files to MPEG and QuickTime files. And if you encode video for HTTP live streaming, Compressor delivers all the files you need in a single web-ready folder.

Pristine format conversions.

Compressor uses optical flow processing to perform format and standards conversions at exceptional quality. You can also take advantage of built-in image filters and tools for audio processing.

Distributed encoding.

With distributed encoding features built into Compressor, you can easily use other Mac computers on your network to speed up encoding jobs.

Built into Compressor

Distributed encoding features are part of Compressor, with no need for a separate application. Just install Compressor on any Mac on your network and activate it as a cluster node for distributed encoding.

Shared Computers

Encode jobs without dedicated hardware by using preconfigured groups of Mac computers on your network. The Shared Computers feature sets up clusters of encoding nodes based on the availability of designated computers. It can even tap idle processing cores on a single computer, using all the processing power of multicore systems.
