Watching video compress is just like watching paint dry – only more boring. Faster is ALWAYS better; provided you don’t lower the image quality.
In this step-by-step video tutorial, hosted by Larry Jordan, learn how to speed Apple’s Compressor 4 by creating a processor cluster on your compression system. Clusters have a checkered past in Compressor. Sometimes they work, sometimes they don’t. While setting up a cluster to combine several machines into a single compression system is often problematic, this simple processor cluster has the potential to cut your compression time in half.
Watch the tutorial below, then test the results for yourself.
