Just checking what others render times are. Mine are i think approx 1 hour per 1 minute of video on the timeline (2-4 filters used). Seq settings are HDV Footage converted to Pro ress 422 LT 1920 1080 50i (PAL) My spec Intel Core 2 Duo, 2.66 GHz, 8GB RAM (fat load of use using FCPs 4GB Limit!), NVIDIA GeForce 9600M GT Is this normal? MPB was top of the range early 2009. Im looking to get a Mac Pro as it gets a bit of a joke when trying to do any sort of compositing in motion - hit render / ram preview - once done, my com is very sluggish and intolerable. (1920 3d graphics).
