What is Squeeze for Mac

Squeeze is Sorenson Media’s workhorse video-encoding tool that will render the highest-quality video and audio files for professionals and hobbyists alike. Manipulate resolution, file output, and other specifications to create the finished video product you need. Use Squeeze to encode videos that you’ve created in Avid, Adobe Premiere, or Final Cut Pro to streamline professional video workflows. Or use Squeeze to update your home movies so you can share them at a family reunion. Whatever the reason, Squeeze is your best video encoding option. Squeeze supports one of the most extensive collections of input and output formats commonly used today and is perfect for rendering media files for the web, mobile devices, disc players, and Apple’s iOS devices to ensure that your video can be shown virtually anywhere. Squeeze features a large amount of customized encoding presets to help you with consistent settings, as well as to be easy to use. Check out the different versions of Squeeze to find which best meets your needs.

Squeeze Desktop is available in three tiers: Lite ($199), Standard ($549), and Pro ($749). Upgrade pricing information can be found in Related Links.

What's new in Squeeze

Version 11.0.0.185:
Input
  • Sequenced Still Image Files (.jpg and .tif) - To help support the growing number of camera and mobile devices that have the option to export video out as individual frames in the form of a sequence of image files (i.e. Time Lapse footage), Squeeze 11 provides the ability to import "Sequenced Image Files" in the form of .jpg or .tif files.
  • Multi-Track Audio (.mov) - Squeeze 11 has implemented support for .MOV source files that contain multiple audio tracks and allows you to encode those tracks when exporting to MOV or MP4 output files. The most common workflow requested with this feature is multi-language track support but can be used in other scenarios as well.
Output
  • XDCAM in MXF Format - Squeeze 10 introduced MXF output and used the OP-Atom operational pattern, designed to address the specific needs of an NLE. Sorenson Squeeze 11 has added support for exporting MXF with an additional OP1a operational pattern. This operational pattern may include multiple tracks of audio and video that are interleaved into a single file, creating a self contained file. OP1a files can be exported by creating an MXF preset and selecting one of the three XDCAM Format Constraints.
  • Removal of output frame rate restrictions - Squeeze Desktop has always been a tool that focused on being powerful, flexible, and simple to use. In Squeeze Desktop 11 we have implemented the ability to export your output file at a frame rate greater than your source frame rate. This is done by strategically duplicating frames, allowing you to meet your file requirements while maintaining the quality of your video.
  • Improved 4K export (expanded 64-bit support) - As 4K and UHD video becomes more and more common in our everyday video workflows, we find increasing importance for 64-bit processing and system memory usage. In Squeeze Desktop 11 we have expanded our 64-bit support to help your system handle the increased memory needs for processing content of these new frame sizes and data rates. It is good to note that 64-bit encoding will increase the encode time so it should only be used when necessary if you are worried about a job's throughput. However, when doing heavy encoding, such as working with 4K and UHD content, 64-bit is the only way to go.
  • Updated Codecs (x264, H.264, VP9, x265) - At Sorenson Media we always strive to provide our customers with the latest and greatest in encoding technology, Squeeze Desktop 11 is no different. We have updated the codecs you already know and love, to give you faster and more efficient encoding.
Filters
  • High Bit-Depth Dithering Filter (Truncate, Triangular, and Bayer Ordered) - Squeeze Desktop is the tool for anyone who needs to encode video. One of the new features in Squeeze Desktop 11 is High Bit-Depth Dithering. Dithering is required when you are working with High Bit-Depth Color, such as 10-bit color, and exporting as 8bit color. Dithering will automatically smooth over the color variations and banding that occurs during this color conversion, resulting in a great looking output file.
  • Text Watermark - New to Squeeze 11 is the Text Watermark filter, giving you a simple way to quickly watermark your output content and make sure viewers know who encoded or created the file.
Miscellaneous
  • Source File Info Dialog - In an effort to give you more control over source files in Squeeze 11 the Squeeze Desktop team has added the "Inspect Source Information" dialog. This new feature gives you more information on your source file, how Squeeze is reading it, what Reader is being used, Frame Size, Audio Sample Rate and number of Channels.

I have this latest version and have been a user since version 4.3. I have had no problems running it on OS X 10.4.5. The programme has only become better, more codecs and a little bit faster. It is assuring to know that the developers continue to develop and upgrade the programme. I expect that if a new iPod comes out with different screensize (e.g. video iPod), the developers will add this to their compressors etc. A bit pricey, but the software is reliable.

-The interface is not user friendly. Presets change when you do not want them to change or get a different location. +The endresult(files) is very good.

Basically Sorenson Squeeze 4.0 is a step in the right direction, but also a step backwards. If you have filenames longer than 32 charaters Squeeze 4.0 ignores them. Squeeze 4.0 is a much more complex application than the 3.x version. It reminds me of Cleaner, but very rough on the UI.
