I have sort of a general Apple Compressor question. Every time I compress a video it begins to drain memory from my local hard drive. I have three other hard drives with more space that I would rather use. I have looked multiple times as far as I could to find where these temporary compressor files are hiding but I can't find them anywhere! They are taking up quite a bit of space at this point. Any idea where I might be able to find them? Or a better way to start looking for them? Anything helps.
I don't use Compressor at the moment, but I found out the following:
One person says "If you click on the blue button on the top right corner of your screen (the one showing a magnifier icon) you can trace this temporary files folder and get rid of it."
The other found the files in /private/var/spool/qmaster
I hope that helps.
Presumably there are some preferences somewhere where you can set a location for temporary files?
