You use the options in the Geometry pane to crop and size the media file being
compressed and set its aspect ratio.
The Geometry pane has three sections:
• Source inset (Cropping): Use any of the four fields to enter the number of pixels by which
you want to reduce the source media file size, or choose a setting from the “Crop to”
pop-up menu to have Compressor enter crop values based on the source media file
• Dimensions (encoded pixels): Use the Frame Size pop-up menu or these fields to create
an appropriate output frame size and aspect ratio for your output media file. Use the
Pixel Aspect pop-up menu to set width and height values to conform to a designated
pixel aspect ratio.
• Output image inset (Padding): Use the Padding pop-up menu to calculate the output
height or width values. With Custom selected, you can enter values in the fields.
