For 2 months I've been spending hours a day trying to understand web design. I am a videographer/photographer with desperate need of a web site I can edit/manage as I build more material. I attempted to ask for help here many times while pursuing this but am afraid of appearing as a newbie who doesn't search the forums. But I've looked everywhere and am simply overwhelmed by what seems to be a lacking standard for what is the right way of going about this. Being a Mac guy I always have Final Cut Pro as being the "right way" and it's manual as being the guide. But my hunt for the right way to go about web design has ended up with so many options I'm lost. It does appear people generally agree h.264 in a flash wrapper appears to be the way to go. I've even seen tutorials on how to do it in iWeb. QuickTime on the other hand offers their easy "Export for Web" setting but I haven't been able to find out the specifics of those settings (i.e. one-pass or 2-pass encoding, etc.). But even more frustrating is getting it to work properly. Using the 'easy' export for web, I drag the reference movie to where I want it and after I publish it's supposed to choose which bitrate version to use depending on the connection speed. The choices are desktop, optamized for iphone (size I assume), or 3G. Online it always uses the desktop high-bandwith version despite the size I make it and the 3G one simply doesn't work. I feel there is a step I'm missing in getting it to work with iWeb and I'm confused why Apple wouldn't explain this better. A huge frustration is just all the different ways of going about this. I know they each have different advantageous but come one now, there has to be something we agree on! Exporting itself has been a nightmare for me as I pleaded for help here. If I could buy you a beer for advice there too I would.... As for building a website. Do you iWeb to not be very good? I've seen so many suggestions (just looked at DVKitchen today) but nobody's agreed upon which is best. It appears I have a lot of questions and I don't want to keep coming here with every little thing. It seems everyone seems to know something I don't. I've read the stickies here and a million other places but haven't found clear cut advice on how to proceed. If someone could please take the time to help me I would gratefully appreciate it!
