Compressor 4 - Batch Window

Batch Window

When you first open Compressor, the Batch window appears. The Batch window allows
you to import source media files for compressing, add settings and destinations, name
the batch, and choose where you want to save it. The Batch window is where you place
all source media files in preparation for transcoding.

Note: Generally the Batch window is always showing. If you close it, it will reopen when
you create a new batch (File > New Batch) or open an existing batch (File > Open).

You can use the Compressor menu bar or the toolbar at the top of the Batch window to
open all other windows. (If the toolbar isn’t visible when you open Compressor, click the
button in the upper-right corner of the Batch window to open it.)
