    Is anyone aware of a script or something to play a sound when a render completes in Compressor? Thanks in advance.

    You can trigger anything at the end of a render so I just set up a quick automator action to send me an alert on my iPhone when the render was done but you could just make it play a sound, or anything else you’d like. Haven’t used it in a while but if I can find it, I’ll post it.

    As an added bonus, you may really enjoy this automator tool. I have found it very useful. The link below will show you how to get SMS messages to your phone (and maybe your Apple Watch if you have one) when Compressor jobs are complete. You can walk away and be alerted!

    Digital Rebellion’s Pro Media Tools includes an app called Render Watcher that will show up as an OSX notification that can be adjusted in the system preferences. So it shows a notification and plays an alert sound.
