To perform a conversion task, a transcoding profile is required. Profiles are created via the Cinegy Convert Profile Editor application.

With the Cinegy Convert installation, a set of sample profiles is added to the following location on your computer by default:

C:\Users\Public\Public Documents\Cinegy\Convert Profile Editor

The profile package file has CRTB format – Convert.DefaultProfiles.crtb.

These sample profiles can be imported to your newly created database and used during the transcoding tasks creation. To do this, launch the Cinegy Process Coordination Service Explorer application and switch to the "Batch operations" tab:

PCS_Explorer_Batch
