Compressor 2.1 Essential Training: Changing the Preferences

In Part 6 of's Compressor training series, trainer Larry Jordan talks about preferences and when to change them By Larry Jordan

Apple's version of its video and audio compression application, Compressor 2.1, packs a lot of new features and produces smaller video files for publishing to the Web or DVD. In this tutorial, Apple-certified instructor Larry Jordan shares workflows and techniques to help DVD Studio Pro and Final Cut Pro users master media compression. The training covers how to work with markers, create custom destinations, improve video and audio quality, customize both interface and settings preferences, and more.

Changing the Preferences for Compressor is different from the settings for Final Cut and other applications where there is a window with preferences for multiple tabs and windows inside the application. In Compressor, there is only one window for the preferences.

You can set it so that Compressor sends out an email when your files are compressed but this isn't necessarily necessary if you're working on the same computer that you're compressing on. Batch monitor automatically launches when you click submit in Compressor, in the preferences you can check whether or not Batch Monitor automatically launches. Default compression and destination settings can also be set in the preferences so that every time you import a file for compression your settings and destinations are automatically applied.
