I posted this as well on apple's compressor support. Nothing has worked so far and I need it so I can export a show out as an MPEG 2 file from FCP 7
I just bought compressor 4. I am running on a Mac Pro 8 core (early 2009) 2.26 GHZ with 6 GB or ram.( I know I need more ram) I am on the trial version of FCP X but I have FCP 7 on my main hard drive. I have installed, uninstalled, I have three drives so i dropped compressor into a different drive I have searched all over google and nothing is helping. When I open C4, I get a window on start up that asks me if I want to make a blu-ray, you tube video, etc... I choose one of the following (tried them all) and once I do that window disappears, but nothing else happens. It just sits there, I left the program running for 5 mins and still nothing would appear. I put C4 on the task bar and dropped a video clip on it to see if it would open the UI that way but still nothing. I read from apple about two different ways to try to fix. One was to partition the drive and the other was to update everything then try again. I really do not want to partition the drive because of the chance i could lose something. The other option mentions opening motion then closing before doing anything else. I don't have motion on this machine. I am using FCP X trial version and that is running and working ok. Any have any ideas on how to get Compressor working?
