OK, here is the situation...
I am producing 30 minute TV programs to air from a broadcast station.
When I am done editing the resulting .mov file is approx. 5GB, way to big to transfer online as it would have to transfer to the station and then again to the uplink.
I am compressing it down to less than 1GB in MPG4 format using H264 as was requested by the station.
I am using MPEG Streamclip to compress but it takes WAY TOO LONG (over 24hours) to do this!
What is a better way to accomplish this?
I know that when you compress you lose image quality but with the software MPEG Streamclip it seems to retain it fairly well.
Is there any other way around all this?
I need to fix this issue ASAP!
