I'm trying to share something with two different compressor settings. I've managed to create the bundle in FCP however I'l looking to have a custom name setting for each. For example XYZ_ProRes 422.mov & XYZ_XDCAM.mov. Basically name the file in FCP and have it attach the compressor setting to the name. Now is just will go XYZ_1.mov & XYZ_2.mov

This was covered in MacBreak Studio #353. It is titled "4k timelapse workflow" but it is more about using filename tokens and multiple job settings:

Thanks, but that only works from within Compressor. I'm trying to use the settings bundle inside FCP and have it apply custom naming tokens that I selected. These seem to only be applied to the locations inside Compessor.

FCPX has some limited ability to do batch sharing of multiple projects, as shown in the below Larry Jordan article. There are some tokens available for export tagging, but I haven't tried that. However FCPX is not really designed for highly customized batch sharing -- that is what Compressor is for.

If your main goal is file renaming, that can be done by Finder or a tool like Better Finder Rename.

The Finder itself can rename batches of files with some nifty tricks.
