Compressor supports the following color spaces: YUV (R408), 2VUY, RGBA, ARGB, and
YUV (v210). Some filters require a color space conversion and some filters can handle
various color spaces. For each media file, Compressor chooses the most suitable color
space to provide the best output and performance results based on the color space of
three attributes: the source media format, the output file format, and chosen filters.
Optionally, you can use the Output Color Space pop-up menu (in the Color tab) to
manually adjust the color space for the output media file.
