I recently switched from FCP7 to FCPX. I enjoy editing in FCPX more, but the rendering and sharing are taking much longer then FCP7. I import 1920x1080 29.97i 1080i HD video from flash cards, and edit. I don't mind the rendering too much, but it is slower then FCP7. The big issue is the time for sharing. My videos are one hour plus and I "share" through Compressor. I used to export as a QT reference movie, which was much faster. Once shared I use Adobe Encoder to make my final MP4 videos which I upload to the web. (Yes I could use Compressor to export as MP4 but Encoder does a better job. FCP7 export to QT reference was fairly fast five to minutes at most. Now "sharing" through Compressor is taking an hour or so. My rig: MPro 3.33 Ghz 6 Core with 6 GB RAM (yeah I could use more RAM but I have had this since the Pro's came out and RAM was expensive then. Anyone have any ideas how to speed up my sharing. I have played with different sized share files sizes, but the speed is about the same. My share file sizes are 1.5 - 2.5 GB. The QT reference files were way smaller. My MP4 file sizes run about 110 MB per hour (these videos are streamed so I use small file sizes so people don't have issues). Any help would be appreciated.
