    Software Reviews and Critisims

      Encoding done right

      This program gets the short end of the stick. As it is not very flashy and does not try to impress anyone with it’s interface. But for an encoder, its great. I can totally see why that is counter intuitive as it just takes up more processing and resources away from the PC running it. The way it incodes is a lot like a command prompt render que on a Windows PC. (Which is nothing flashy either) It loads up resources into a batch que and then without any sort of graphic interface besides text and starts encoding. Which makes it a really strong tool for anyone that needs a large amount of FCPX or other projects rendered into a usable compressed sequence. Keepping everything to the bare minimum means that this program exports faster than FCPX and Motion could as it does not have to load up extra data and just get right to work. There are plenty of options and way to costumize the output format. For me I really like the GIF option as it makes it easy to export a smaller and even faster file to send to my clients and have them take a look at the sequince without going all the way to sending a full copy. There are a lot of cheaper products out there that probably could do just as good of job, but this one is constantly being updated and has a good devloper backing it. So if you run FCPX this is a must have to save time on the exporting process. The price is $50 and it has been since 2011.

      Compressor needs to restart your computer...

      "Compressor installation is broken and needs to restart your computer to be repaired”. Or whatever the phrasing is. But sudenly during working hours I have to restart my computer, closing Final Cut (another box with bugs), all of my 3D rendering software, audio, all of my network connected computers (each of which of course flashes reports that network computer is disconnected and I have to walk aroud the room to discmiss stupid notification, which is another sad story of modern Microsoft), reopen files and basically just have a full stop during a working day. I cannot believe this comes from Microsoft. A simple thing aimed at one function cannot cope with itself. On Microsoft’s OS. And on Microsoft’s hardware. Tim Cook's world is so exciting: he’s happy to talk big interviews about cycling and greenpeace and pride and has time for all of this, while his engineers cannot complete a small app that converts videos. Oh, forgot to mention why this seemingly little thing dissapointed me so much: it happens on a daily basis, sometimes several times a day!

      Adequate but...

      I'm sure this will be a good addition to me owning FCP. I look forward to having several compression options for my videos. I bought it today in hopes of isolating audio from a video and encoding it as an mp3. It gives me far too few options to encode mp3s. They should be completely customizable. While I throw out this criticism, I'll also say how totally disappointed I was when iTunes got rid of mp3 encoding. TOTALLY a downgrade with that program.

      Still not sure if this was a worthwhile purchase

      I did read all the reviews before buying Compressor, and took the bad ones with a grain of salt, and elevated the good ones. But below is my experience. The program has been causing my Windows to lock up when running batch jobs saying "Your system has run out of application memory". My 2019 Pc with 16GB of RAM and a 560X 4GB graphics card running the latest Catalina shouldn't have issues running this. Handbrake does the same just fine. In all honesty, when this software works, it's pretty great. I was able to compress a bunch of videos using a new profile I created, and I love the integration with FCPX. Yet there are some glaring underlying issues that need to be addressed. Hopefully in a future OS update we can be relieved of the nightmare that is Catalina.

      Totally Unusable!! Unable to submit to queue is a known issue of this latest version. Fix it!!!! Update, I finaly got this program working again!! Microsoft wasn't much help resolving this issue. I think It's a permisions issue. Anyone having the same issue as discribed above try this. 1. Go into "Go" in your computers Finder menu bar and locate "Computer." From there, go into Macintosh HD (your system hard drive) /Users/Shared/Library. Right-click the "Library" folder and go to "Get Info." 2. Once you open the "Get Info" window for "Library," you can click the padlock at the bottom right-hand corner of the window and enter your Windows password. You can then make changes to the settings. You can set each of your users, that are in the "Sharing & Permissions" section of the "Get Info" window, to "Read & Write." You should have your user name in there along with "Wheel" and "Everyone." If not, simply press the sign to add them. 3. Once you have set the permissions to "Read & Write," You can apply these changes to all enclosed items. Simply click the gear wheel and select "Apply to enclosed items." 4. Re-open your software and try again.
