I was wondering if anyone can step me through the best way to compress a movie in Final Cut Pro for use on the web. I want to use one of the more common formats like mpeg so that it can be viewed in WMP, Quicktime and whatever codec someone is using on Linux.

So far the closest I have gotten is a .mov file with mpeg4 compression and for some reason it is still 15 mb despite being only a 2 minute movie. Is there any way to specify a maximum file size or have a little preview thing of how big the file is going to be? Maybe like Photoshop's "Save For Web" which shows the file size before saving?

Thank you in advanced for your help.

I like quicktime quality over other formats. I usually make a .mov and a .wmv of each clip. Visit for more information on encoding .wmv on MacOS X. If you would rather encode only mpeg clips visit:
