Compressing videos: everybody's gotta do it. But what program is best? And what compression settings should I use? In this quick class, I'm going to show you how to compress videos the best way I know how. I'll cover different compression scenarios, and how to compress any video using Adobe Media Encoder, and the free program MPEG Streamclip. In less than 25 minutes I'll demystify some of the most confusing pieces of compressing videos so you can start sharing your work online!

This class does exactly what the title states. It provides specific information for compressing videos. Using the techniques outlined in this video I successfully reduced the size of a video from over 1GB to just over 200MB with no visible reduction in quality.

Hey! My name is Jake Bartlett, and I’m a motion designer from Denver, Colorado. I've been animating in Adobe After Effects for over ten years. After five years of working for an LA-based production company, I have gone freelance full-time and now work from home. Animating as a motion designer professionally is a dream for me. I get to use After Effects every single day for my job.

Since starting my professional career I've animated over 800 episodes of 8 different motion graphics shows for clients like Yahoo!, MSN, Twitter, YouTube, Pepsi, VH1, HGTV, NateGeo Wild, The History Channel, and Ulive to name a few. In my free time I love making animations for myself. I've found that constantly challenging myself on my own time has been the best way to increase the quality of my work. Being able to consistently use After Effects on a daily basis and always having a tight deadline has made me very fast and efficient with the program.
