Join Jeff I. Greenberg for an in-depth discussion in this video Setting destinations, part of Compressor 4 Essential Training.
A way that you can really improve your workflow with Compressor is by specifying…really exact destinations for your media.…So far pretty much we've been sending stuff to where the source file lives, but…that's not always a great choice.…So to give you an example of this, I'm just going to come out to the Finder and…on my media drive here, I'm going to create a Folder. And the Folder I'm going to…do--I'm going to call it something like For Online Upload.…This is where I'm going to end up using.…I'll end up compressing stuff for Vimeo or YouTube or wherever, but I want…it all to go to only this folder, rather than to where the source is, or somewhere else.…
We're going to teach Compressor how to put stuff there, as well as how to…name it appropriately.…So when I get to Compressor, you can see there is a tab next to Settings…called Destinations.…We have four pre-built Apple Destinations.…Cluster Storage, and we're not going to even worry about it, but three that…are valuable of course, where the Source is, the Desktop, and your User's Movies Folder.…
