I cannot find anything in the system requirements that states whether Compressor 4 will work with anything older than FCPX. Does anyone know if I can use it with FCP 6, or, if not, can I use it as a stand-alone application?

Compressor, Mac OS X (10.6.8)

    The limitation is that there is no interoperability and, therefore the Send to Compressor function from FCP won't work with C4.


    But you can use it as a stand-alone product. Export QT movies from FCP and bring them into C4 for encoding.
