Batch Processing and Distributed Processing
You can encode movies individually or you can submit multiple movies to a batch
processing queue. Apple Qmaster, included with Compressor, reduces encoding time
with distributed processing, which distributes your video encoding tasks to multiple
computers on your local area network. Each computer needs to be configured as an
Apple Qmaster node.
Distributed processing when exporting to Compressor directly from
Final Cut Pro also requires each computer to have Final Cut Pro installed.
See the Compressor User Manual for information about configuring computers for use
in a distributed encoding process.
