Why is it taking over 2 hours to compress a 30 second finalcutpro project down to a mpeg-2?  there's no fancy animation going on.  relatively lots of titles, it's a political ad.  Anything that could be done differently?  Troubleshooting??  HELP!

Final Cut Pro X, Mac OS X (10.6.8)

    Something is weird – with your system – or with your source file. Is everything else on other apps working OK?


    For starters post screenshots of your Compressor project, including the Batch Window, and the summary pane in the Inspector.

    Hi Stevo, in compressor.app , go and SET "FRAME CONTROLS" to OFF in the Compressor Inspector for that job (see the gear wheel) Resubmit and see if there is a major reduction in the service time for THAT job.

    Good chance thats causing ya issue Just trawl the forums and you will see. I noticed when Compressor 4 was available that some but not all of the Apple Seettings had FRAME CONTROLS set to ON.


    post your experiences for others to see.
