Latest update ruined it

1
Compressor was great, however after the most recent update it's been changing titles. No joke, either changing size or placement, and it drives me insane because while I proof-watch the video within Final Cut, everything is sized and positioned properly, then after it runs through Compressor there's always at least one title either moved totally out of place, or increased 40 points in text size. Needs to be fixed!

Audio not syncing/ missing

1
There is a huge bug in compressor when exporting, in pro-res and other codecs, no audio is being included in the final video from final cut. Nothing I have done has fixed this. Everytime I get my video back with no sound. I'm at the end of my rope. My project is due soon and I am running out of options. If only these apps would work how they are intended too.

DO NOT BUY THIS SOFTWARE!

1
Installed on M1 MacBook Pro. Only gives errors when trying to encode any video files. Doesn't matter what format you choose. This software is completely useless. The Repair function is a joke. Uninstalled and reinstalled. Nothing fixes this issue. Searching forums you will find many peope have this issue and they have to downgrade to an older version. I don't have access to an older version to install so I am dead in the water. If I could give this ZERO stars I would. No way to contact Apple directly for help with the issue. Truly a waste of money. DON'T BUY THIS SOFTWARE!!

Same as source color compression

1
I need to transcode the infamous R5's h.265 but it won't let me carry over the source color codec. When selecting "Choose automatically" it selects Rec.709 making my footage a lot brighter. This is unacceptable for a piece of transcoding software, especially since I have read multipe reports that this used to be a feature of Compressor. Waste of money until this is being adressed.

Completely Broken After Update

1
Worked great for the last year . after today's update (on a Catalina system) all i ever get no matter what type of conversions i attempt, is an "unable to submit to queue error message. Please let me revert to an older version!

Please bring back single layer DVD burning

1
The newest release is useless to me with out single layer dvd burning. Please bring back that feature.

Pulling my hair out!

1
I just downloaded Compressor because it looks perfect for a project I'm working on. However, I continually get a "Unable to submit to queue" error no matter what I do. I've searched the internet and done everything I could find without any improvement, including: Trashing application support folder, restarting computer, installing pro video tools, trying another user, unplugging everything from the computer, trying other video files, etc. So annoying!! I'm going to have to move on with another tool at this point, it's costing more time than it's saving.

Only major changes are new bugs and missing features

1
Video quality for lossy codecs like HEVC and AVC is still extremely poor. You're far better off using FFMPEG/Handbrake. 5.1 audio support is so poor that it grinds to a halt whenever I try to work with separate audio channels. This is YEARS old software, I can't believe it's still this broken.

great software.

Ive never had an issue with this software converting my file types to prores. its quick with the M1 chip and i love the panavivision export settings for playback on 21:9 res monitors. you cant go wrong for a ONE TIME 50 dollar payment NO SUBSCRIPTION nonsense.

Simple to use but needs eGPU support.
