Built-in presets in Compressor
Use the built-in presets in Compressor, grouped by category in the Presets pane, to convert any file from its source format to other commonly used formats.

Video Sharing Services
Create QuickTime files for video-sharing websites like Vimeo. Includes 4K, HD, SD, and other presets.
You can also customize a built-in preset in Compressor or create your own custom preset from scratch. For example, you can create a custom preset either to convert progressive video to interlaced video or to convert 29.97 fps video to 23.98 fps video. Before you create a custom preset, view the related built-in presets to see if any of those meet your needs. If one does, or if it comes close, duplicate that preset, then modify any properties that you need to change. The advantage of duplicating a preset, rather than creating a new preset from scratch, is that many of the properties are already configured, and so you’ll need to make fewer adjustments to the preset.
