Step 4: Selecting the Target

There are various target tabs that you can choose from, each containing preset profiles (3). For our purposes in this tutorial, we have selected the TV option. As our target device, we have chosen “DVD to Xvid” (4). We can click on the profile listing (5) to select “Plus HD – 640 LQ h264/768kbps AAC/128kbps”.

Note: You can check the selected source in the status bar (6). In this case, we have chosen a “Blu-ray” source.

Step 5: Selecting the specifics

When rendering to a mobile format, you have the ability to choose one title (7), one language (8), and one subtitle (9). The internal player (10) allows you to preview the title, and because the player can play HD movies, you will not experience any stuttering. To see the full-screen view, simply double-click the player.

Step 6: Configuring the profile

Profiles can be amended to suit your specific needs. Simply click “Configure” (11) to open the “Configure Profile” queue. Once this is opened, you can make your changes and click “OK” to accept them (12). If you would like to leave the menu without accepting the changes, click “Cancel” (13).

Note: You can save any edited profiles by clicking “Save” (14). To access them in the future, use the “Custom Tab” (15).

Hint: To alter the ‘Zoom’ of the target video, see “Using Zoom Function” tutorial.
