I've edited some footage and decided to burn it out with iDVD and making some nice menues and slideshows and so forth. The total content for the DVD is around 88 minutes and when i start encoding it says it will take nearly 5 hours! Now about 30 minutes later it still says 4 hours and 17 minutes. I'm checking Activity monitor and iDVD uses around 50-60% CPU, of a maximum of 400% (quad core), it uses a total of 1/8th of the available power i have here! I read some people said that it only renders to main HD, so I have to have enough space there, which I have and it's a Vertex 3 SSD too, so it should be plenty fast. I also have 16GB RAM and iDVD seems to be happy with just 300 MB. I've done a lot of video work earlier, and this kinda reminds me of when I did edit videos on my G4/450MHz with 1GB RAM back ten years ago, then I remember you left videos overnight rendering.
