Go All-Digital

Supporting the global environment we supply all software as digital downloads only. How can you participate?

We all can be part of the solution. Digital downloads are the "green" answer to demanding fewer resources for your computer's needs. What you get is software with an environmental footprint of zero while still staying up-to-date.

Digital downloads are one part of the larger trend in making our lives - both professional and personal - cleaner, more efficient, and better. Continue reading to see what else you can do to improve your green computing.

Limit screen-saver use. A screen saver does not save energy. In fact, more often than not, a screen saver not only will draw power for the monitor, but also will keep the CPU from shutting down. Instead, set your computer to turn off the monitor first, then go into standby mode after a longer period of inactivity.

Disconnect your Virtual Private Network (VPN) when not actively using your corporate network. Being connected may limit your system's ability to enter standby mode.

Many popular computer games and other third party software packages that run in the background will not allow the computer to go to sleep - even if they are paused or the active window is minimized.

Some web sites or pages that have active banners and or animated advertisements will not allow the computer to sleep on its own and must be closed, or the computer put manually into a sleep state.

Enabled power management to place your monitor, hard drives and computer into a low-power "sleep" mode after a period of inactivity.

Monitor/display sleep: Turn off after 15 minutes or less

Turn off hard drives/hard disk sleep: 15 minutes or less

System standby/sleep: After 30 minutes or less

Advanced users may wish to establish multiple power schemes to address different usage models. For example, you can create a power scheme for playing music CDs that shuts off your hard drive and monitor immediately, but never puts your system into standby mode.

To further reduce power consumption, turn off computing and peripheral devices that are not being used or being used for an extended period of time such as overnight.

Plug all your electronics into one surge protector, so you can easily switch them all off when you leave the room or go to sleep. Most power supplies (such as your cell phone charger) continue to draw power and generate heat even when not attached to a device.

Advaced encoding. SimplifiedCustom output settings. Distributed encoding. And a full range of delivery features.Compressor adds power and flexibility for exporting projects from Final Cut Pro

What's new

Custom export for Final Cut Pro For custom export options, send your Final Cut Pro project directly to Compressor and choose from a wide array of codecs, sizes, frame rates, and other parameters. Save your customized or new settings, and they instantly appear in the Compressor settings menu in Final Cut Pro. You can share these settings with other Final Cut Pro editors, even if they don’t have Compressor installed on their workstations
Built-in distributed encoding Distributed encoding uses available capacity in other cores and other computers to make encoding go faster. You can now designate computers as encoding nodes without opening an additional application. To get started, install Compressor on your own Mac or any other Mac on your network and activate it as a node for distributed encoding
HTTP live streaming support Compressor now supports HTTP live streaming, with new export settings that let you encode your media in a single step for streaming web playback on Apple devices and Mac computers. All the files you need appear in a folder, ready for upload to your website
Streamlined settings library Find the preconfigured settings you need in just a few clicks. Choose from folders including Apple Devices, Disc Burning, HTTP Live Streaming, and more. Standardized plain-English labels and descriptions let you identify the setting you need at a glance

Features

Time-Saving Encoding Workflow It’s easier than ever to customize and share Final Cut Pro output settings — or to create completely original settings for specialized encoding jobs
Customizable settings in Final Cut Pro Final Cut Pro lets you access the complete library of export settings available in Compressor. Customize any setting just by opening it in Compressor. After you’ve made changes to the setting, save it, then access it in Final Cut Pro through the Compressor settings menu
Share Final Cut Pro export settings Whether you customize an existing Compressor setting in Final Cut Pro or create an entirely new setting, you can share the results with other Final Cut Pro editors — even if they don’t have Compressor installed on their workstations. Just send them a small settings file and have them copy it to the appropriate folder
Intuitive interface Feel free to experiment with encoding options. The dynamic Preview window shows results in real time as you prepare your footage for encoding. Scrub through video with frame-accurate timecode controls, trim media, and instantly see how the effects and filters will look when applied to your audio and video.
Efficient workflow Eliminate repetitive work with a wide array of time-saving features built into Compressor. Quickly create batch processes that streamline the encoding of large numbers of files. Reuse any batch by dragging it from the History pane. For drag-and-drop convenience on the desktop, create self-contained encoding Droplets
Batch templates Batch templates let you combine an existing encoding setting with a job action, which automates tasks such as emailing, moving, or copying files or executing a custom script. Save time on repetitive post-production tasks by creating custom batch templates in Compressor
Streamlined settings library The library of preconfigured encoding settings in Compressor is now organized in a simplified folder structure. Plain-English labels and descriptions make it easy to find exactly the setting you need for your project. Add your own settings to the Custom folder, or organize them in folders you create
Industry-Standard Format Support With support for a wide range of popular device formats as well as professional video and audio formats, Compressor expands on the encoding options built into Final Cut Pro
Encode video for devices and discs Compressor includes a variety of preconfigured settings that make it easy to deliver content formatted for popular devices — including H.264 presets for Apple devices. Choose from a set of menu templates to create basic Blu-ray discs or DVDs.* Add chapter markers for discs or for podcasts distributed on iPad, iPhone, iPod, or Apple TV. Even upload files directly to the web
Image sequence support Import Targa, DPX, TIFF, PSD, or PNG image sequences and transcode them with any Compressor setting. You can even include an audio track when you encode
Broad format support Quickly set up encoding jobs for a broad range of industry-standard formats, including MPEG-2, H.264, and QuickTime. Or encode to ProRes for stunning quality at surprisingly small file sizes. If you encode files for HTTP live streaming, Compressor delivers all the files you need in a single web-ready folder. You can also use Compressor for converting surround audio stems into Dolby Digital Professional AC-3 for DVD projects
Advanced encoding options Use the advanced features of Compressor to add closed-captioning files to MPEG and QuickTime files. You can also add metadata such as keywords, copyright information, and annotations to files as you encode them
Pristine Format Conversions Compressor uses optical flow processing to produce format and standards conversions at exceptional quality. Use Compressor to efficiently convert or retime large numbers of clips
Format and standards conversions Convert any file from its source format to any other format — for example, convert from NTSC to PAL, SD to HD, or progressive to interlaced video. Or choose Reverse Telecine to convert 29.97-fps video to 23.98 fps. Compressor offers advanced optical flow analysis to produce format and standards conversions at exceptional image quality
Video retiming Speed up video, slow it down, or adjust the frame rate to make the duration match a specific runtime. Compressor produces pristine retiming effects, complete with automatic pitch adjustment for audio
Dynamic image filters Choose from a set of convenient image filters to customize and clean up your content as you encode. Easily add a timecode overlay or animated watermarks, which are ideal for identifying your work. Or quickly fix video problems by applying color correction, noise reduction, brightness, and contrast filters — without leaving Compressor
