I've done everything that I see in the posted image using Compressor 4 but still no joy.
My virtual cluster in Compressor 3 worked just dandy but this time around, nada.
I'm choosing "Share this computer" from within Compressor 4> AppleQmaster pulldown
(The only difference with the supplied image is that my QuickCluster has the name of my machine in the field. Other than that, all the right boxes are checked.)
Any help with what was a decent setup in Compressor 3 and now is seemingly faltering in Compressor 4, would be gratefully received.
Set your Qmaster just like the image below... Click on Compressor options to set how many isnstances your going to use... Give your QuickCluster a name.
Here is Compressor 3.5 setup.

StingRay67, Many thanks for getting me on the right track with setting up the virtual cluster in Compressor 4. David, Thank you for clarifying the settings. Could have sworn blue that I had them 'exactly' like this, but it appears I didn't because now I see my cluster in my 'Share Monitor" as well as everywhere else I was expecting to see it. (I guess I'll have to run faster or go for shorter runs now!)
