Compressor job stuck on 'waiting...'
on Feb 25, 2013 at 11:59:41 pm

I have set up a Render Cluster with two computers, an iMac and a Mac Mini. Both are core i7 recent models. When I submit a job to the Cluster, the first few in the batch will generally go through just fine. after a few of the jobs go through, however, the rest just get stuck on 'waiting...' indefinitely. Has anyone ever had this issue?

Yes. Compressor is not the world's best application at batch processing. Some have reported that 20 jobs is the upper limit, some 12, and others 10.

Compressor is cheap. To quote a carnival barker, "You gets what you pays for."

I see. So what you're saying is, I can't batch process unlimited numbers of jobs? I figured there was a limit but that's exceptionally low. Is it due to memory constraints? All computers involved are pretty high-end.

Unfortunately, Dave is right. Just experienced the Batch problem in a different way: had to convert lots of 5D footage.
Wanted to drop all hundred into the Compressor window....app froze.
So I had to batch smaller junks, the I wanted to drop output location and settings to all of them at once.....froze.
I like the results of compressor a lot, but in terms of Batch and handling big amounts of files, it's poor, to say the least.
