Hi all, Perhaps this may or may not be already known in the greater Mac community, but I have a suspicion that Quicktime encoding in iMovie on intel is significantly slower than its PPC counterpart. I did some unscientific tests with my core duo iMac (1.8GHz, early 2006) and a dual 2.5GHz G5 in the school lab. I encoded a 4:13 DV movie with the following settings: 1000kbps, mpeg4 (standard, not h264), QVGA resolution. I clocked the time it took for each machine to encode and used Activity Monitor to observe the CPU percentage each machine was using along the way. PPC: With iMovie using 55-60% (I assume that's of one core, the figure that's in the process list?), or about 1.3 GHz, it took just over 2 minutes Intel: With iMovie using 80-100% of one core (1.44-1.8 GHz), the encode took 4 minutes and 40 seconds. I'd call shenanigans, but before I do, I'd like to see if other people have gotten similar discrepancies between PPC and Intel procs when exporting from iMovie. Anyone else have stories to tell?
