Auto fills in the proper settings based on the current camera settings. So when Auto is used, settings that are manually modified are ignored. For example, if you create a preset profile using one the static create methods, such as CreateWmv, and specify Auto as the encoding quality, any changes you make to the properties will be overwritten with values based on the current camera settings.
