I am wondering about render times for FCPx (I just got it today). I am rendering (exporting using the default vimeo setting under share) a fifteen minute timeline that has a couple of effects (Dream Look, Vibrance, Spotlight) and has been reversed and slowed down. So far it is about 25% done and has taken 4 hours. I exported an equivalent timeline from Premier Pro CS5 (obviously not the same but equivalent in terms of filters) using Media Encoder and it took about an hour. I am wondering if the speed drop is because of the background sharing or if I am missing something about setting it up. I guess I will try Compresor and test that against Media Encoder.
