Intro to Compressor settings
You can modify Compressor settings to customize your workflow.
Open Compressor settings
Choose Compressor > Settings (or press Command-Comma), then click a button at the top of the window to open a pane.
Note: On systems running macOS Monterey, “Settings” is listed as “Preferences” in the Compressor menu. The recommended system requirement for Compressor 4.6.4 is macOS Ventura.
There are four panes in the Settings window:
Use the General pane to set basic application settings.
Use the My Computer pane to allow other computers to use your computer to process batches.
Use the Shared Computers pane to set up groups of shared computers for distributed processing.
Use the Advanced pane to adjust additional distributed processing settings.
