Having editied my HD video in FCP X, and then Share -> Send to Compressor, I added markers manually in the Compressor Timeline, set the Job Action as "Create Blu-Ray disc", and then Submit. I have a Blu-Ray burner in the second optical disc space in my Mac Pro which I set as the output device.


What happens is this: Compressor successfully creates the .264 video file and the .ac3 file on the desktop. The progress bar then stops, it says time remaining is just over 7 minutes, and that's it. Disc isn't burnt and Compressor hangs at that point.


Same happens if I set the output device to be the hard disk (i.e. create a BDMV folder).


Someone may be able to make sense of the end of the Share Monitor log file:
