Just wondering because its so time consuming, even on my new macbook pro 2.33... 2g RAM.
Welcome to video editing, rendering takes time. All you can do is get a faster computer.
By the way, it takes years to render a Pixar film.
man, i cant wait til the 20 cores come out.Rendering should be real time in about... 10 years.
what the worst part is, even just to preview it, you have to render.
Rendering and Compressing - that is why I have 2 PM's and a MP.
what does PM and MP stand for?
PowerMac - MacPro
Why does that matter? I mean even if you have 2 computers rendering wouldnt speed up because of that would it?
Yes it does, FCP can utilise xGrid to distribute rendering over all computers connected on a network. Pixar use massive linux-based "render farms" to render their films.
More processors = faster rendering so if you hook up 2 Mac Pros and 2 PowerMacs you can significantly speed up the process. Don't ask me how to do it though, I have no idea.
well i dont have 2 macs but my next computer will prob be a mac desktop.
Well that'll give you a nice boost. Four processing cores is better than two (in this case, not all software is multi-processor aware) and by the time you get your next one it could be 8 or more.
I have purchased in order:
PowerMac 2.0 x 2 6GB
PowerMac 2.5 x 4 8GB
Mac Pro 2.66 x 4 4GB
So, I continue to upgrade machines to make rendering faster. Compressor will use the combined power of these machines using Qmaster. The next version of FCP will do the same. By then I should have another 8 cores to throw into the mix.
Does rendering/compressing video require THAT amount of RAM???
When I work with FCP on my machine, it never takes more than 150 MBs of RAM!!!
It must never take you over a minute to render, unless you have a large project, right?
