Which MPEG-2 Compressor Plug-in is Best?

I’m writing a story for Digital Content Producer on producing MPEG-2 video from HD source in Final Cut Pro/Compressor. Which plug-ins are best?

– I’m trying to get Cinema Craft in, but they’re not responding to my emails.

– I’ve got a trial version of Bitvise.

– I’ll try Telestream Episode and Sorenson Squeeze.

Are there any others that I need to try? Any workflow tips? I’ll be working with interlaced HD source, 1920×1080.

Add a comment if you have any input, or email me at jozer@mindspring.com.
