Setting a Poster Frame with Apple Compressor

| | TrackBacks (0)
Apple Compressor will allow you to set the poster frame of whatever you are running thru Compressor. A poster frame is the frame that is displayed when your movie is viewed in the Finder. This can be very useful when trying to identify one video that looks like another, or starts with a fade up from black.

To set the poster frame, in the Preview window move the playhead to the frame that is to become the poster frame. Next go to the Modify Marker Settings pop up menu in the Preview window, and select Set poster frame. That’s all there is to it. 

One thing to keep in mind is that when in Column view in the Finder the poster frame will display in the tiny icon in front of the file name, but not in the Preview when the icon is selected.
