    It depends on the specs of the computer and other variables. Perhaps include a bit more information, but as a general question it could take that long.

    I've got a Dual 2GHz G5, and when I do a 2 pass encode in x264 it will take around 8 hours for the average length film.

    That's h.234... it takes ages... MPEG 4 normal takes me 2.5 hours for a 2hr film.

    yeah, using ffmpeg to encode is a lot quicker than x264, but x264 looks a lot better at the same filesize and is worth the extra time.
