    Hey! I'm exporting a 13 minute video out of Final Cut Express that is in HD and is 3 hours normal?

    I'm using a 2.8Ghz 24" iMac with 2gigs of ram.

    I exported using Quicktime conversion at 1280 x 720.

    Is 3 hours right? How big do you think the file will be when its done? Sorry this is my first time exporting HD and usually it only took 25 minutes before.

    Thanks!

    I'm not sure, lol. Sorry real new. Used a Canon HV30 set on HDV standard and then captured in FCE using the Apple Intermediate Codec 1080i60.
