Quick Overview

The world of high-definition video is filled with incompatible formats. If all you shoot is one video format, transcoding may not be necessary -- though changing your render settings is often a very good idea. In this Final Cut Studio tutorial, Larry Jordan looks at what transcoding is -- it means to convert your video from one format to another -- and why you should use it. Transcoding is not the same as compression, nor is it used for the same reason. This tutorial explains why.
