I'm having a similiar issue, my file orginally is only 10sec long and 13mb *.mpg file, the same as it was when I was converting in CS4, only back then, the convertion took maybe a minute and the output file size was about 1mb or smaller, and that was keeping the 640x480 size and removing audio. Now with CS5, the estimated output size is anywhere from 2000-3000mb for starts, remove audio and scale back other settings and I can get it down to 70mb and takes a staggering 2.5hrs to complete...for a 10sec video. I don't know what they changed between cs4 and 5 but they screwed up big time, this is a joke. i'm on AME ver. 126.96.36.199(64-bit) if that makes any difference. any idea or help would be greatly appreciated, I've got about 5 of these 10sec vids to convert a month and I need to get this fixed.
