Chapter 15. Delivery Basics > Compressing Selected Tracks

Compressing Selected Tracks

At times, you will want to designate that selected tracks in a movie be compressed while other tracks be left alone. If you have a movie with text and video tracks, for example, you might want to compress the video track but not the text track. Or you might want to lower the data rate of your sound track, leaving other tracks as they are.

Although other, more expensive tools (such as Media 100 Cleaner 5) provide simple methods for designating a hands-off approach to certain tracks, QuickTime Players offers no correspondingly simple method. You’ll need to use some combination of techniques covered in this book—copying, pasting, adding, extracting, deleting, exporting, and importing—to achieve the desired result. We’ll cover one possibility in this section. (See “Changing the Characteristics of a Sound Track” in Chapter 13 for an alternative technique.)
