    Well I was stupid enough to update to 10.5.7 two days before a video deadline.. yeah leave the comments about that until later! At least I used the combo update...

    But anyway, since I did that Compressor will no longer compress anything and will just sit there with 'unknown time remaining' or sometimes I can get the clock to start ticking over but the progress bar never actually progresses with the CPU running at 0%.

    I have tried fully trashing all preferences, even with 'Compressor Repair' and no difference.

    At the moment I have got around the problem by just rendering a ProRes422 Quicktime of the final edit and let DVD Studio Pro do the rendering instead - which ordinarily I wouldn't like to do.

    Is this happening to anyone else? Any solutions?

    I've only found one support discussion with the same issue happening...

    i loaded 10.5.7 onto my MBP and just ran a motion file > MPEG2 with Compressor... it started out with the "unknown time remaining" but after maybe 4-5s it started normally.
