Compressor/Qmaster not using multicore on Mac 2010
on Dec 31, 2010 at 5:30:38 pm

I'm unable to get multi core utilization doing transcodes in Compressor with Qmaster set up. I have the following:

2010 Mac Pro 2 x 2.4 Ghz Quad-Core (8 core)
Memory 12 GB 1066 Mhz DDR3
OS X 10.6.5

Running Compressor 3.5.3

My biggest concern since I got this box is istat seems to indicate that I have stuck cores, could this be the fact that I have mismatched cores & memory (8 & 12)?

screenshot of what appears to be stuck cores during transcode:

Here's how Qmaster is configured:

Option to choose quickcluster:

Individual encode in progress:

As you can see I have qmaster configured as a quickcluster but it isn't using all of the cores as illustrated in all of the different screenshots. What am I doing wrong? Please help?

Thank you kindly in advance,
Denver Riddle
