Figure. MPEG-1 Encoder pane of the Inspector window.

The MPEG-1 Encoder pane opens with the default Video tab on top and contains the following items.

  • Extension: This field displays the MPEG-1 file extension (.mpg) automatically after the MPEG-1 output format is selected from the File Format pop-up menu, or the (+) pop-up menu in the Settings tab. The extension changes to the video-only extension (.m1v) if the Audio tab is disabled, or audio-only extension (.m1a) if the Video tab is disabled.
  • Allow Job Segmenting: This checkbox allows you to turn off job segmenting. It is relevant only if you are using Compressor with distributed processing and with multi-pass encoding. (The distributed processing feature is limited to computers that have Final Cut Studio installed.) For more information, see Job Segmenting and Two-Pass or Multi-Pass Encoding.
  • Video and Audio tabs: These buttons open the Video and Audio tabs described next.
