Compressor 4 – Distributed Processing

I tossed together a video tutorial on using multiple macs to do distributed processing with Compressor 4.

I found that Compressor 4 cannot talk to qmaster nodes on older macs running Compressor 3.5.  And in the case of my 1st generation mac mini it won’t install Compressor 4 from the app store.  BUT I did find I could drag Compressor 4 to my mac mini manually and run it as a services only C4 qmaster node.  Thus I still get to use it for extra processing power in my Compressor 4 cluster.
