Best way to compress for the internet?
what is the best way to compress a large video file for online streaming while still retaining quality (keeping it HD)? I'm using FCP7. So basically what I am thinking is convert to quicktime movie and save a full high quality file and then use another piece of software to compress it? I've looked at a bunch of vimeo videos and they all seem to be at 1280x720 and in MPG format. I'm a noob at this so if someone with experience wants to walk me through it that would be awesome.
Export with compressor
1920x1080 (if it's a 1080p project, otherwise 720p 1280x720)
H.264 with a bit rate around 5,000, optimized for streaming, best quality
AAC audio, quality best
HDV720 30p is what I use.
