I'm rendering footage from several cameras used at a wedding into one Sequence Timeline and its taking a long time. The actual clips i'm using were imported from a DVD and converted into MP4 files with AAC sound. Ive worked on this machine with other footage directly imported from a DV camera before and the render times were nothing like this! Im running. G5 Dual 2.7GHz Power PC 4.5 GB Ram ATi Radeon X800 XT Graphics card 80Gb start up and Apps disc 250Gb dump for all Final Cut files, including the originals. The clips in sequence create a continous sequence, 1hr16mins long. Currently its suggesting the rendering will take 9 hours total. Ive set the output to DV Pal on easy setup. Am i doing something wrong? Thanks in advance guys.
