Hi All,

I'm developing an app that measure the elapsed time of FCPX export in a fully automated way.

Been a video maker and using a MBP and eGPUs I found that could be useful to benchmark hardware configurations (CPU, GPUs and storage media) and software configurations (OS X versions, Final Cut Pro version).

I'm currently in beta test.

If you would like to know more, please let me know.

@antoine, I'm interested.

I'm using a 2017,27 in. iMac, with an RX 580 card in a Breakaway Box. I use latest version of FCP.

Antoine,

I downloaded the file you sent, unzipped and installed it per your instructions. I followed your Readme to setup FCP and chose a 51 second clip to render. The script seemed to run OK but it would never complete. I left it run for over an hour the last time. The script did render out the clip to the default location (ChronoX_Pro_export.mp4 was the file name) but I never receive the pop ups telling me it was done. When I cancel the running script it shows 0% as being completed. Am I missing something?

Thanks.

ChronoX_Pro_export.mp4 is weird as is should be ChronoX_Pro_export.mov

Did you checked the Readme File about how to setup Master File destinations in preferences?

Also check if there is any bash process running in background and force terminate with Activity Monitor.

Antoine,

I finally got it to work. I did follow your instructions in the Readme File except in the Actions section of the Master File I had selected the action to take when done was to use QuickTime Player. I failed to look at the "Open with" area which was set to a different media viewer (not QuickTime). Once I figured out how to change the default in the "Open with" to QuickTime, things started to work. 

Suggestion - no where in your Readme did you say that your "App" was running a Script. The first time I ran the App I had no idea anything was going on, until I noticed the gear icon in the menu bar whirling around.

You might mention that this is an indicator that the App is functioning. 

The site wouldn't allow me to upload an Excel file, so I did a screen capture and uploaded it. Hopefully you'll be able to see the results.

Thanks.

Thanks @georgesm for the update and the suggestion.

ChronoX has been released and there's a free version here: https://www.evrapp.cloud/ChronoX.html

@mac_editor, I think you should give it a try.

Antonio.
