What is the deal with my experience with the G4? I'm not expecting it to decode the human genome in seven seconds and do backflips, but if I remember correct, when Jobs introduced the G4 at the turn of the century, he and the audience were going absolute NUTS over its performance. Specifically, I remember him encoding a video in real time! I'm sorry, I've tried every size and format, but a twenty-eight minute video that takes two and a half hours to export is FUH-HAR from real time. In the Xbench tests, the machine sure comes alive, performing all those floating point operations it was designed to, but in this instance it just doesn't make sense to me. What am I missing? Is it simply an OS 9 thing? Were they using some super efficient top secret software? How do I encode video in real time? What is the fastest most efficient way to change a media file's format?
