I'm having a problem that just started yesterday where a short project I'm editing in FCP gets hung up when the project is being exported as a ProRes 422 HQ file in Compressor. What I mean by "hung up" is that it seems to be exporting fine and then close to its processing end, the countdown clock will slow to a crawl only to, very slowly, start climbing back up at about 1:14 left in it's duration. I'm now agani at about 1:24 and climbing.
This is a project I've been working on for several weeks and have exported numerous time with no problems until now. I've tried and re-tried several times now with the same results.
Can anybody suggest what might be going on and what I can do to remedy this problem?
Are you using the send to > compressor option? I have run in to similar problems using this method. I recommend exporting (make self-contained) a master and then importing that into compressor---see if that works... Also download and run "Compressor Repair" software first and repair disk permissions and restart computer if you have force quit compressor.
