  • FCPX 10.4.4 bug… Send to compressor

    Since updating to 10.4.4 I’ve noticed that if I use the customised keyboard shortcut to “send to compressor” it will instantly crash FCPX.

    Does anyone else have this issue?

    I’m seeing the same behavior. Let’s file bug reports.

    I sent feedback and purposely crashed it so I could send them the crash report too with info about how I crashed it. Hopefully it will be fixed soon.

    Tested on 25+ machines. All without issue. Would be interesting to know what’s crashing you.

    So just to confirm. You have assigned a key in keyboard customisation? I set the ‘s’ Key to be “send to compressor”.

    Open project and press the assigned button. Instant crash. Tested on 2 machines 100% replicatable.

    Ah… I missed the part about assigning it a custom shortcut. My bad. I thought in general. In that case, yes, it crashes here, too.

    Not assign it a shortcut? ????

    Just curious… what is everyone needing to send to Compressor?

    Everyone that reads this thread – please submit feedback to Apple about the bug so it’s made a priority and gets fixed.

    As to why you would send stuff to Compressor – there are a lot of reasons.

    1. FCPX doesn’t have true background exporting. As soon as you start working again it pauses the export. But if you send it to Compressor it can run in the background and you can keep working.
    2. In Compressor you can apply multiple compressions to one file very quickly, without having to build a bundle of exports like you would in FCPX.
    3. In Compressor your compression settings can include a custom location and naming convention, so once it’s done it automatically gets put into the right folder and named a specific way. FCPX can’t do that.
    4. Compressor can use multiple machines, making it faster in some cases than a direct export from FCPX.
    5. Compressor can email you when it’s done. FCPX can’t.
