You need to compress 1,000 hours of video? Epic! My take:

Compressor will do what Jeff describes, play with short clips until you get the overlay correct.

It's also not the most efficient encoder out there. I'd look at investing in Episode Pro from Telestream - it'll do the overlays, has very powerful workflow/processing abilities, and (I think - jump in here Cow ppl) will encode more efficiently than Compressor (utilizing more cores & RAM).

Adobe Media Encoder on my new 8-core Mac Pro encodes H.264 more than twice as fast than MPEG Streamclip with the x264 encoder (which didn't use all the cores). Very impressive.

For the amount of footy you have, you might also consider a hardware encoder like the Matrox MAX or ElGato USB dongle. If encoding takes a 2:1 ratio, you're looking at 83 days to encode that material.

Hope you don't mind not using your comp(s) in that season... What on earth generated this much footage?
