I am trying to use Compressor in a simple way -

I use Final Cut Pro X ro Share - Send to Compressor

then in Compressor I drag up a Setting and a Destination to the top left pane.

Then Submit

 

BUT I get a One or more targets incomplete message.

 

What is wrong with this workflow please?

    Can you take a screen shot of a batch window that shows your source, settings, destination?

    The third job in the stack doesn't have a setting, which is the warning you;re getting.

     

    What are you trying to do?

    Michael,

     

    To compress a big movie file to a small movie file, while maintaining as much quality as possible, is everyone's objective,

     

    That can be done by choosing a good delivery codec (like h.264), by adjusting the bit rate, or perhaps doing ather things that affect the bitrate – like frame rate, size etc.

     

    You have a  file in FCP that you send to Compressor. Select a preset – say, AppleDevices SD. There is no need to creat a separate job to encode the audio. There is no need to create a separate job for the movie destination.

     

    As far as qaulity is concerned, I'd suggest not resizing and see whteher the output file is small enough for your festival. If it's too big, go into video settings and lower the bit rate until it meets their specs.

     

    Good luck.

     

    Russ

    My error was dragging the Destination and dropping it under or over the Settings. It actually needs to be dropped onto the actual Settings bar between the two sets of vertical lines.
