Use the built-in settings, grouped by category in the Settings pane, to convert any file from its source format to other commonly used formats.

Create files for use with motion graphics applications.
Create broadcast-quality, high-resolution, high bit rate video files.
Create files for audio and video podcasting.
Create high-quality, high-performance files for use with Final Cut Pro and post-production workflows.
Create uncompressed 10-bit and 8-bit 4:2:2 QuickTime movies.
Video Sharing Services
Create QuickTime files for publishing to video-sharing websites like YouTube and Vimeo. Includes large and small HD and SD settings.
You can also customize a built-in setting or create your own custom setting from scratch. For example, you can create a custom setting to convert progressive video to interlaced video, or to convert 29.97-fps video to 23.98 fps video. Before you create a custom setting, view the related built-in settings to see if any of those meet your needs. If one does, or if it comes close, duplicate that setting, then modify any properties that you need to change. The advantage of duplicating a setting, rather than creating a new setting from scratch, is that many of the properties are already configured, and thus, you’ll need to make fewer adjustments to the setting.
