it's really a nightmare. Apple really needs to do something about the quality of its "pro" software. Can it be disabled? I went through every other process before finding this one, and finally pinning it down to the fact that Qmaster wasn't starting is what worked.
ok, Qmaster has officially crashed. Type the following line, then press Return: cd /Library/StartupItems/TrustedApp.app/ Type the following line, then press Return: sudo rm .disabled From the Apple menu, choose Restart. Final Cut Studio apparently includes a System Preferences pane for Qmaster. such a bummer.

Now, if you don't see a list of Qmaster related files, such as qmasterconfig or QmasterApplications.plist, then you haven't installed Qmaster, and you'll need to go back to your base install thanks for any input...

When Compressor starts, this will be set to None, then as it connects to Qmaster, it should quickly change to your machine name. Often a reinstall may have excluded Qmaster. You could instead wrap the entire path in double quotes if you wish. Break on __THE_PROCESS_HAS_FORKED_AND_YOU_CANNOT_USE_THIS_COREFOUNDATION_FUNCTIONALITY___YOU_MUST_EXEC__() to debug.
I really just wanted to see how much time it would say it would take to render the whole thing so I can plan accordingly. You MUST exec(). In the terminal window however my machine name appears to be Macintosh-3? http://netfiscal.com/final-cut/final-cut-pro-7-unable-to-initialize-hdv-deck.html i follow the user manual but nothing happens after click on submit.
I set up a Qmaster no network, which is his option 2 and voila!, after rebooting again qmaster processes were active and when I launched Compressor, the qmaster processes stayed active. You should also check the security permissions. If that doesn't work, time to call Apple. I copied the two lines of code into the terminal and bingo everything works as it should.
This will return you to the Compressor Batch window, where you can simply click on Submit. If not, then you should select it manually yourself. But once again, trying to run Compressor gets the Bkgrnd Process flag & once again terminal cant find anything under ls -l /Library/Application Support/Apple Qmaster/.

Compressor background process error Authored by: djarsky on Oct 28, '05 07:27:15PM I found a solution! i think what's going on with me is that qmaster is not starting on every boot. What gives? FINALLY!
If you're not using a server rendering farm, just the one computer you edit on, then Qmaster won't require network access. What am i doing wrong here? But everyone once in awhile, a major bug makes its way into one of Apple's programs and leaves many people scratching their heads and calling tech support.

You don't know how much I was disappointed with my situation that I was comtemplating having to spend money to go down the dreaded upgrade path of Final Cut Studio and I've never changed the Qmaster preferences, but for some reason, something changed them, maybe an install of another Apple product, maybe a crashed or cancelled Compressor session, who knows. will i need to upgrade to a more recent version of final cut to fix this issue?
