I can't figure out how to modify the Apple TV 2 settings.  Will Apple release an update for the Apple TV 3?  It would be nice to have a setting for h264 4.0.

 

I'd like to render some home movies in 1080p.

 

Thanks for any info.

    If you mean will Apple update Compressor's presets to include a 1080 option, neither I nor any of the users here could possibly know.

     

    AFIAK, there is no way to re-size within the current Apple TV preset.

     

    I'm not positive whether this wouuld work since I don't use any version of Apple TV, but try one of the http presets; change the bitrate to 10K and the extension to m4v; in the Geometry tab change size to 1920X1080. Output file and and test.

     

    Good luck.

    Open the Geometry tab and open Frame Size.

    Any idea how to get the 5.1 surround track back in.  The http settings don't seem to have the Include Dolby 5.1 option.  I tried the old Copy, Add to Movie trick in Quicktime 7 and it seemed to work like always but the surround channels don't see to be playing on the new Apple TV.

    Just noticed something else.  The Include Dolby 5.1 checkbox on the HD for Apple Devices settings doesn't even seem to be working any more.  I used to get files with AAC and AC3 tracks now they just seem to be AAC.  This might be a result of the last update to Compressor.

     

    I'm getting surround from the new Apple TV on movies from the iTunes store and Netflix as well as older home movies I've created.  I just can't seem to make new files with a surround track.

     

    This is all getting too complicated.  Does anyone have an easy workflow to take a 1080p ProRes movie with 5.1 audio and generate the proper files (SD, 720, 1080) with proper tags and cover art ready to import in to iTunes and play on Apple devices.
