An amusing observation: While writing out a movie file during compression, Discreet’s Cleaner 6.5 keeps writing and deleting a 10Mb “DiscreetTest” file to the directory in which the output file resides, in the same time period as it writes about 0.1Mb to the output file. I guess it’s testing to make sure there’s 10Mb of space left on the drive, but it must also make the drive do a lot more work.

Still no response from Discreet as to why they don’t have a Discreet support forum, or whether the product’s going to be End-Of-Lifed. But I suspect it’s doomed and is unlikely to make the transition to MacIntel.
