Quick Cluster - shows in activity monitor but not QMaster Status bar

Hi,

I am trying to speed up my exports using a single machine with a dual quad core processor.

I think it's working, because I can see the number of instances (12 out of 16 total) running in the activity monitor, but when I view the QMaster status bar, it doesn't indicate any of the cores have been captured.

Everything looks like its running normally. That's just how it displays.

You are utilizing all the cores.

Make sure the drive you have for Qmasters scratch is fast or it will take forever to stitch together the encodes all the cores are doing independently...negating all your speed gains.

Great point - thank you! I think it's currently set to one of our Fibre drives, but I'll have to double check.

Also, do you know the best workaround for the lack of ability to utilize a Quick Cluster when you send straight from FCP to Compressor?

I read that exporting a reference file (by not checking "self contained") and then throwing that in Compressor works, and that's why I tried, but when it finished, the file was corrupt (and also really tiny for a 30min HD show).

No workaround. FCP7 is discontinued so it won't be fixed.
Don't know if its better in X.
