Transcode war: MPEG Streamclip vs Compressor

A rather unscientific comparison of MPEG Streamclip and Compressor speed during transcoding shows that MPG Streamclip is about 2x the speed of Compressor during transcode of H.264 to ProRes. I've not tested against Compressor with a virtual cluster on my quad-core Mac Pro because I have had problems with Compressor jobs hanging every once in awhile when I target clusters.

Source clips are 1080p clips from a GoPro camera. Video is sped up 20x.

Compressor is rather disappointing these days. I feel like it hasn't changed for years.
