We have used Compressor 3.5.3 and qmaster on Snow Leopard for a long time.


We recently bought Compressor 4 with the builtin Qmaster, but

now the "idle" machines do not grab compressor jobs unless a user is logged in.


Is this a Mountain Lion issue (as we upgraded to ML and Compressor 4 at the same time)?


Is it better to go back to SL and 3.5.3 or is there a way to make it so ALL

the idle machines (at night when people have logged out) can be used

to run these large Compressor jobs? (2 hour shows - twice a week)

    I don 't know what's going on with your ML and C4 situation. But I also can't see any reason why it wouldn't make sense to roll back to a configuration that previously met your requirements.  Certainly C3.5 and C4 are comparable in capabilities. I have both versions (on 10.6 1nd 10.7) and which one I use depends on the project.


    Good luck.
