Pausing Compressor 3 ?
on Jul 31, 2007 at 9:18:48 pm


I'm converting a large HDV file to DV in Compressor 3. The total process will be long: approximately 6 hours.

Three hours through the job, I had to disconnect my computer and leave the office -- so I paused the encode in the batch monitor, quit batch monitor and compressor, unhooked my laptop from my media drives, and left.

The next day, when I reopened batch monitor and reconnected my media drives, the paused job did not show up in the batch monitor window.

Is there any way to salvage the 3 hours of work that compressor has already done and resume from where I stopped, or does compressor not acknowledge paused jobs after a restart?

When I do a search for the compressed media, I notice that batch monitor has created three files:


Is this .qmpause document my secret to getting batch monitor to resume its work on my project? Double clicking on this file does nothing....

Any tips are greatly appreciated.....Many thanks!
