Hi - I have just installed FCP 3 and am trying to convert batches of .mov files to pro res in Compressor before importing them into Final Cut.

But Compressor is running really slow - the beachball comes up and spins when I just try to select one file, let alone more than one, and if I drag a destination format to a list of files then it sits there spinning for ever.

I would be grateful for any ideas on what to do. I have 4GB RAM, and Quad Core so am assuming it's not a memory issue.

I am pulling the mov files from a 1TB external hard drive connected by firewire, and have also done a test trying to bring files into compressor from my internal drive as well - the problem is the same either way.

QUOTE Thanks
