I'm new to iStockPhoto, and also new to Compressor. Who else here uses Compressor, and what export settings do you recommend? I shoot 1080p HD with a Canon XL-H1 and edit with Final Cut Pro X.
In Compressor 4.0.6 I clicked the "+" button to create a new setting, chose "Quicktime Movie", set "Audio" to "Disabled", chose "Photo - JPEG" as the compression type. I slid the quality slider to "Best", but there isn't any place for me to type in 95%, as the training manual suggests. I set the "Frame Size" to "100% of Source" because the default was 720x480. I can't seem to figure out how to enable Multi-Pass.
Before I go encoding dozens/hundreds of video clips, do my settings sound right? I want to upload the highest quality possible, even if it means rendering takes a little longer.

Choose Motion Grafics
Quick Time Animation, drag and drop up
click on the blue bar, then click the second botton of Description
click on Video Setting and choose Photo-JPEG in the Compression Type
click on Best about the Quality
So, press Submit

I do not see "Motion Graphics" or "Quicktime Animation" anywhere in Apple Compressor 4.0.6. And there are several blue bars. Can you be more specific?

Do you see the folder named Apple (inside Settings)? Open it and search for another folder called Motion Graphics. Open it and search for Qick Time Animation!

Ok I see it now, sorry about that, I'm still learning the program.
I noticed the default pixel depth is 32 (compared to 24) and the temporal quality is 100 (compared to 0 ). The compression type is "Animation". But as soon as I change compression type from "Animation" to "Photo JPEG", the pixel depth drops to 24 and temporaral quality drops to 0. So as far as I can tell, there is no difference between the settings in my original post and your suggestions (which is good, it means I had the correct settings). Or is there something different in your method? I don't know what "temporal quality" is anyway.
Thanks for your help!

I don't matter about temporal quality...
