My 2.5ghz G5 (OS 10.4.11) experienced a kernel panic (it's fans rev'ving up big time) during a (Apple) Compressor v3 run. After a restart it seems to get stuck at the beginning of a new compression task (Unknown time remaining) with no progress in the progress bar. I've tried several source files, compression presets and target destinations, nada.
Recently I noticed that progress bar would go from little to lots in a big leap but I don't think that's related. Do I have any other choice but a reinstall? (like trashing some kind of preference?)
