Transcoding - sometimes slow, sometimes fast and sometimes not at all?

Apr 20, 2012 3:50 PM

This is odd...Sometimes Encore CS5.5 will transcode fast, sometimes slow and sometimes it would't transcode at all. (No errors. Seems like the program stop and go to sleep) And this is on the same project without any changes. I just tried to restart my PC, restart Encore several times, and everytime It wil behave differently. Why?

    More information: are you using Transcode Now? With AME or via Encore?

     

    What transcode setting? What source material?

    So you are making a DVD from HD material. How are you getting the source into Encore? Dynamic Link from Premiere? An intermediate file?

     

    Transcode settings can be "Automatic" (Encore sets a rate to fill the disk), or you can select a preset, or customize a preset.

     

    I do not see any reason the times would vary a lot, except for varying length of the video.

     

    The "sleep" issue you raise makes me wonder if Antivirus or other processes in the background are causing problems.

    Try exporting from Premiere (using AME is fine). MPEG2-DVD preset. Is the slowdown present?

     

    Basic hardware setup? (How many drives, internal/external, etc)

     

    Windows? I would run the PPBM5 to see if there are any performance issues.

    If you are going from HD to SD, then Jeff Bellune's HD2SD TUTORIAL might be useful.

     

    Good luck,

    I can't find my notes, and I am away for the day. Is the 220 in your PPBM results the disk I/O? Compared to your other numbers, that's not good, right? Not terrible, but ... (I may be wrong.)

    Also, make sure you do not have even a 1 frame gap between video files
