Is there a way to add a destination setting to say 40 clips in compressor all at once AND then followup with the encoding setting?

I can highlight all the clips and add say the encoding setting successfully but then I have to drag/drop the destination setting one by one to each file. My mouse hand is killin me.

And what if I wanted to have all these files encoded into two different formats all in one ground around. Trying to figure this out is making me crosseyed. Any tutorial links out there? Much appreciated. Thanks.

I can't test it because I do not have Compressor in front of me, but I'm pretty sure if you highlight all the clips, then go up to destination in the menu bar that should apply the destination to all the clips.

You can copy the settings of one clip, then select all the others & paste it in.

I figured it out with your help. You have to copy the spine with the settings and not the whole clip section. This MBP screen is so small you almost need a magnifying glass to read it. Hopefully the new FCP will let you increase the text/graphics size. Thanks for the assistance.

You can also add a destination....

then open the preferences and make it the default - making it easy to add 40 items without pain (or use a droplet)

Best,
