I just got compressor and have ten video's that need to get to one output format- (mpeg2, interlaced, for a studio interview). So I made tests and got the settings right for the test video clip- which was not simple to get the interlaced and I saved the setting.

Then I bring in the other video jobs... some have different fps, .mov vs mp4  and such...   I drag the saved setting to each job and it shows in each job BUT the output file is not that way... I think they are progressive and the fps didn't adjust.   does this mean I have to go and individually change each job settings????  what am i missing?

    What happens if you double click on the setting in the batch window after you've applied it to a file?  When you look at it in inspector are the settings correct.  If the target frame rate is different from the source frame rate you have to make a change to the video setting in the encoder panel and adjust the settings in the frame control panel appropriately.  Post back if this isn't clear.

    When making a Compresser custom preset, it's wise to review all of the parameters in the Summary window to make sure you haven't missed any "same as source" or "pass thru" options which could make the output vary.


    I've been burned by this when I got in too big a hurry.


    hope this helps
