    Or Why IMovie have stop using core 2 duo and now stock around 60% instead of the usual 175 % of processes capacities?


    It's been 30 hours now that I struggle with various hypothesis of work, trying to rehabilitate the full capacity of IMovie 08 (v 7.1.4) to export in a proper time.

    Usually, during exportation, Imovie use 150 to 175 % of my MacBook Pro Core 2 duo, since the last two days, it is stock between 30 and 70 % and I can't figure why. Lately, at its best, It went back to 120% for about two minutes and drop back to 65%.

    It is like that since I bounce a 15minutes single track on Logic Pro 9 while IMovie 08 was exporting. It then generate a ReportCrash's crisis that I've try to describe my best here As the Crash Report was about QMaster / Qmasterd, I have removed completely the application withouth been shure it was a good idea.

    It then let IMovie gain back some strength and to now use around 60% of the capacities instead of the poor 25% of the crisis time. Still it make my work days compromise as an export that was taking 40 minutes is now recquiering 260 ! I was fearfull that qmaster could have been an architectural piece that make possible the usage of the dual core ( Core 2 Duo ) but by a test on another similar cpu without qmaster, Imovie was still exporting at 140%.

    Any suggestion is welcome.

    This happen at the worst time I could have imagine as I have to quickly produce a pilot as a film project proposal. What seemed flush in the usual exporting time now seem compromise by that bad surprise.

    If nobody has a clue, does efficiants clip's trimming programs exist for mac ?

    Hope they is a known way to solve this issue without having to bring the machine to the store

    Why did you remove Qmaster? Qmaster controls the cores inside of your processor when you're exporting and compressing video. That was a bad choice.
