Using Export Presets

You can streamline your workflow by saving all export settings (any combination of export objects, formats, and actions) into a collection of presets for future use. Custom export presets can include any combination of exported items, file type, bit depth, sample rates, and post-export actions.

To create a new export preset
  1. Choose File > Export (or press Command-E).

    The Export dialog appears.

    • For compressed audio file types (MP3, AAC/Podcast, Dolby Digital Professional/AC-3): The options include the detailed settings for each of those formats, the choice of Compressor presets, and After Export actions.
