AIFF output format is chosen from the File Format pop-up menu or the (+) pop-up
menu in the Settings tab. Don’t alter this field.
• Allow Job Segmenting: This checkbox allows you to turn off job segmenting. Since job
segmenting is not used for audio-only encodes, this checkbox is not active with the
