After you have the in the render you queue, "Cntl+A" will select all the comps and you can change your render settings(Best, DV, Draft).

To change the output module select the title "Output Module:" now and now go the last one you want to render with the same settings and while holding down "shift" select "Output Module:" Now you can use the pulldown to change all the output modules of the selected comps.

It's also worth taking time to create Templates for your Render settings and Output modules. When you make a template it will appear in the selection drop down menu, making it easy to apply it to multiple items in the Render Queue. You can also choose it as a default render setting so that you don't need to change it every time.

In terms of Output modules, many people don't realise that you can add multiple Output modules to a single render que item. This means you can render a movie once, then format it for several different outputs, avoiding re-rendering it every time. Saves tons of time.

To do this, select the item in the Render Queue and choose Composition > Add Output Module. Adjust the settings as required.

BTW, you can move Templates to other machines, very handy if you are a freelancer like me, working on different jobs and different systems.
