Compressor 4.1.1 Refuses to Run
"Useless Updates”, “Useless Product”
4.1.3 stills doesn’t run on my 12 core Mac. Get it together or drop this waste of time product.
Compressor refuses to run on Mavericks, it completely locks up my 12 Core Machine and many times causes dots to appear all over my monitor. I've tried everything I can possibly find on the internet to fix it and it still doesn't work.
Forces update of FCP
I have an issue where Apple does not let me update my FCP. Unil they get their act together I am on 10.1.1
Now the Compressor is updated and won’t work unles i update FCP to 10.1.2 or high….
Apple support is terrible.
So far so good...
Compresses video twice as much as FCP, uses all my cores. Haven’t had a chance to play with the distributed encoding yet so I can’t comment on that.
