So what do you do when you have to make the same compression over and over and over again?…And maybe it's like custom compression that you've tweaked out yourself to be…perfect for your shop and the types of exports you do.…Well Compressor has some great tools, including saving custom settings and…creating droplets that really automate this process and make it much, much more efficient.…I am in Compressor now and I already have the setting that I have tweaked.…It's an MPEG-4 setting, but I have tweaked the size and the data rate, things…like that to be exactly, exactly what I want.…
Now I want to save it as a custom setting and I can just do that right here with Save As.…I like to give this an informative name, in this case something like Mpeg-4 50…percent, which is the type of compression I have set up and we see…immediately that Custom settings now has one setting and if I scroll down,…I also have the name that I chose and I can use this as often as I want now, if…it serves my purposes.…
