Configuring AIFF Settings

When you choose the AIFF output file format as your output format, you can only create audio settings (because it is an audio-only format). If you want to add an audio codec to your AIFF preset, you need to open the Sound Settings dialog and choose your audio codec settings from there.

To create an AIFF audio codec setting
  1. In the Settings tab, do one of the following:

    • Make sure that the correct setting is selected.

    • Create a new setting by choosing AIFF from the “Create a new setting” (+) pop-up menu.

  2. Click the Settings button in the AIFF Encoder pane.

    The Sound Settings dialog opens.

    Figure. Format pop-up menu in the Sound Settings dialog.
  3. Choose an audio codec from the Format pop-up menu and either accept its defaults or customize the other audio codec settings (Format, Channels, Rate, and Options, if available). See About the Sound Settings Dialog for more details.

    Note: You can see full details of the current contents of your preset by viewing the QuickTime AIFF Summary table in the Encoder pane.

  4. Click OK to save your settings and close this dialog.
