Blu-ray on 12 core macs with CS4 - how many processors?
on Sep 16, 2010 at 3:41:26 pm

A month ago I tried rendering an encore blu-ray on a quad core mac into a lacie burner- after 16 hours I turned the thing off without result and the machine was still in render hell.

Now I have a 12 core mac, 16 gig of ram - it's fast but I hear that compressor will use all 12 cores but Encore will not (CS4)

Apologies if these questions are dumb but I'm more familiar with DVD studio pro and I take nothing for granted....

So if I used Compressor to first prepare the files

a) what should the settings be in compressor to work for encore CS4 at Blu-ray level

b) can I import these files direct into encore without any more transcoding

c) should I get CS5 and be direct - assuming that CS5 has been written to use all processors?

Thanks in advance
