Digital Media Net’s several sites have posted a series of video tutorials excerpted from Larry Jordan’s Compressor 2.1 Essential Training, published by Lynda.com:
Part 1: Compression Terms and Bit Budgeting
Part 2: Interface Essentials
Part 3: Advanced Compression Workflow
Part 4: Advanced Compression Techniques
I’ve subscribed to Larry’s Final Cut Pro newsletter since the second edition in March 2004. Each one includes a link to a PDF version to save for reference, and he posts updates and tips on his site as well. If you use Final Cut, Larry Jordan is a great resource.
UPDATE: Part 7: Trouble-shooting

I’ve got a group of MacBooks that needed updating, and will have some more soon, as well as some of the new aluminum iMacs. I’ve just learned, thanks to the NetRestore documentation on Mike’s site, to duplicate a specific image from a FireWire drive to the 15 MacBooks. When the iMacs come in and I’ve configured their apps and settings, I’ll try doing it from our server. Could be fun. If you’re responsible for more than one Mac, this is a tool you should have. It’s great for backups as well as restoring a custom configuration to your lab machines. Get it here: Bombich Software’s NetRestore.
