How do you make sure Compressor 3.5.3 uses the Q master cluster?  I know you have to set up Qmaster, but I don't know what the settings are supposed to be. My MacPro 2,1 has 8 cores.


Also, how do you tell if your version of Compressor is running as 32 bit or 64 bit and how do you change it from one to the other?


I have two identical MacPros but one takes three times longer to process the same files in Compressor. I'd like to get them on even ground. They have the same separate raids as well and they both test equally with AJA and Black Magic speed tests.
