    Hi folks,

    I'm using Clipwrap to unwrap mts files into prores. it works fine, but it only uses about 45% of the 4 cores in my 2009 MPro.

    Is there anyway to increase it so it uses them all? A 50 minute soccer game is taking almost 1.75 hours to un-frickin'wrap. that seems like a long time and more irritating when i see the cores are out for a Sunday drive rather than givin' er.

    ugh.

    tried to leave a message on clipwraps forums, but still waiting (3 days) for acceptance....

    Cheers,
    Keebler

    As I'm sure you can guess, only a Clipwrap programmer can change how Clipwrap runs. But I'm very interested in this as well, as I have 4 years of AVCHD imported by the Sony camcorder import program on a PC. These M2TS files have to be converted by Clipwrap to edit them in FCPX, as they of course weren't properly ingested into a disk archive format that FCPX understands.

    I don't know if it helps you, but I'm also trying Revolver which puts the AVCHD files into a pseudo-archive format that FCPX can ingest. Then I'll let the multi-core aware FCPX do the transcoding into ProRes.

    Thanks. I communicated with them and they are working on it. They laid the groundwork for it in the latest release so hopefully soon :)

    Cheers
