Join Jeff I. Greenberg for an in-depth discussion in this video Stealing settings, part of Compressor 4 Essential Training.
My favorite hidden feature about Compressor is the ability that it has to…take an existing movie and inherit or steal its settings, and this couldn't be simpler.…It's a drag-and-drop.…There is only one little thing I want to point out with it is I'll do…almost everything perfect;…you just might want to throw one extra switch.…We're going to take a look at our Transcode Start movie.…You could of course use any movie you want.…It doesn't have to be this.…I'm just going to get information on it.…I'm going to right-click and say Get Information.…
I want you to see here in the More Information of its Codec, particularly…it's H.264, and its bit rate is 49.067. That's about 49 megabits per second.…I am going to go ahead and open up Compressor, and instead of dragging…directly into our well here, I'm going to drag into where it says Custom, my Custom settings.…It's going to create an untitled setting with what's necessary to build a movie…similar to the one I'm dragging into the settings.…
So when I drag this here, you'll see this changes from 15 to 16.…
