I'm currently trying to get distributed processing to work using two different computers on the same network running the same versions of osx, fcpx, and compressor. When I go to choose the group I made from the "process on:" dropdown, it will not let me choose the group that I made. I'm trying to export to compressor directly from FCPX, and that works, but it would be much faster if I could farm out the videos from this computer to my other mac. Does anyone have any idea why I can't select my group?
Compressor 4.1 does not support distributed renderings for other programs (such as FCPX). This is documented on page 11 of the Transitioning To Compressor document. You can only do distributed encoding for transcodes defined entirely within Compressor, not renders.
