Hey everyone,

We've started using GoPros at work, recording upwards of 4 hours at a time (each file being separated into hour increments by the GoPro).

We've been testing the transcode speed from it's H.264 file to ProRes LT (everything is 720p) in both Compressor and MPEG Streamclip (which is recommended by GoPro). MPEG Streamclip seems to do a much faster job of it.

Would there be any good reason why Compressor wouldn't be able to do the same job as fast as MPEG Streamclip?

How did you setup your cluster in Compressor?

I just did one clip at a time. Pulled from the hard drive, not a sequence that was sent to Compressor. Converted to ProResLT, audio disabled.

You'd still want to setup a cluster. It speeds encoding.

Oh I see. I can tell I have a lot to learn about Compressor. You've pointed me in the right direction to read about it. Thanks!
