Thanks again Stephen.

I like Compressor :) I just don't like the fact that my Motion projects kept crashing it! (Quartz plug in I think)

And I'm not unhappy with the solution (I'm actually glad for any solution) - so thankyou.

Probably at the heart of all these problems is Quicktime - which I guess is being used as the interpreter for the Motion project within Compressor.

Perhaops if someone went through my workflow and told me why I was crashing and a way around it it might help...

My workflow was to drag the 35 motion projects into Compressor. I then highlighted all the individual source files and went to add a destination - this crashed Compressor after about 2 - 3 minutes. So I tried adding a custom preset to every file - XDCAM, native to the original Motion file for frame rate and raster. That crashed Compressor. So eventually I had to add a destination and preset individually to each source file. This took a while because everytime I highlighted a source file or dragged anything to it there was a noticeable delay. I saved each time and eventually got there with only one more crash.

Is there a better way and can anyone explain why it kept crashing with multiple projects?

This is the workflow I'd like to adopt to batch out Motion projects...
