retain render settings and move playhead to next in/out

Hi. How do you retain the last render output settings. ie size compression, codec, file name, etc. everytime i add something to the render queue i have to edit all the same settings again details again.

Would also like to know in the comp window how to move the play head from one in out end of an element to another with a keystroke, rather than manual move and zoom to accurately move in out keys (is there a snap to used key position?)
sorry about my terminology.
thanks

Well, the easiest is to do is set up something the way you like, then under the drop down (for any of the render items) choose "make template" and build a template of the exact methods you like under the "Render Settings Template window" and save the settings you like. Then go through each one and change the defaults for yourself.

Next time you go to render everything is defaulted exactly the way you want it.

Make any in/out selections on an element by alt I/ Alt O

Select a layer. Press I or O and you'll jump to it's in/out point.

Best,
