Apple compressor and error "0"

Hi all


OK -- here's what I've got: brand spankin new G5 dual core 2.3. -- totally virgin top to bottom. Updated all the way. Brand new install of Final Cut Studio crossgrade -- the latest and greatest -- also updated all the way. Everything here is squeaky clean -- no stray code floating around anywhere from any previous applications.

SO -- the problem is the (I have discovered) dirty little Apple secret that Compressor 2.1.whatever does not like dual processor machines --- every time I try to encode something to mpeg2 it goes a while and then gives me the "quicktime error 0" message.

I've done quite a bit of digging around in these message boards and have only found some older posts claiming that a certain Apple download patch will allow you to shut off one processor -- and then Compressor will work properly. I tried that and no go.

Is this still the latest attempt at a solution? Those posts were several months old -- hard to believe Apple hasn't addressed the issue properly since then. Am I missing something?? Has this problem been corrected -- and maybe it's some other conlict I'm having?

Only other thing on my system at this time is a couple of Lacie big disk extremes -- but they don't "seem" to be creating any disturbance in the Compressor force.

What gives??

Steve

PS -- this thread has been kicking around the Apple boards for a few days -- everyone is baffled. This problem is very common but so far nobody has the magic bullet for it.

What are you encoding? Are you using Ref clips or self contained? Are the clips on the Lacie and are you creating the MPEG-2 back to the Lacie? Did you try sending the MPEG-2 to the internal drive? Did you delete the Compressor prefs (most likely you did). Is it a preset you are using to encode or have you created a new setting? CBR or VBR?

Was there a resolution to this issue. I have the same problem? Let me know if you found out anything.

Thanks
