Hi all. First time posting here so I'll try to be as descriptive as I can.
I'm trying to export out my senior project for college from Premiere. We're burning them to DVDs and since it's my senior project I have to make it into professional quality. Else I'd just export it into H264 like most of my other videos. It's total running time is 07:16:04 I'm trying to render it out in 720P60, since I think that's what I set the sequence up to be. Now when I go to render it I leave the audio uncompressed. Now I wait a short amount of time to see what the total time to export it out would be. I go off and do some other things and come back and it's at over 91 hours. I'm not sure if I'm doing something wrong or if it's trying to convert something into something else. I just think that's probably not right at all, given the length of the seqence itself, while also having ten second of black at the beginning and end.
So basically my question is are there other things I should be checking? Or is that just what the standard export time for that is? Cause I'm kiiiiinda opposed to just leaving such a project open while I sleep hoping that my external hard drive is connected in case the laptop goes into sleep mode and then possibly prematurely ejects the drive.
Thanks for the help guys.
Sort of like saying "my truck is too slow" without telling us what truck, with what engine, and the weight of the load... oh yeah, and not telling us you are doing the Pike's Peak hill climb
Joking aside... More information needed for someone to help... click these links and provided the requested information
Agree w/ John and Harm, and have something to add. Is your project 7 minutes or 7 hours long?
For a 7+ hour project that you want to look good, you should not try to compress it to get much more than 60 minutes / per 4.7GB "side" of typical DVD media. Yes, professionally manufacturered DVDs put 2 and sometimes 2+ hours on DVDs, but they are sometimes dual layer and/or dual density, and they spend lots of time doing the compression with expensive tools to do so.
You laptop could be very slow compared with a fast system. Possibly you could hook up with someone that has a high-powered system that runs the same Adobe version as you do that could do the render for you?
>in case the laptop goes into sleep mode
So... go into the BIOS or Windows Control Panel and TELL the laptop not to go to sleep!!! (one of the questions in the link I posted... are you Windows or Mac?)
Also, in general, a laptop is SLOW for video editing... unless it was specifically designed for such
Some ideas for a Laptop Video Editing PC from past discussions
For effective HD video editing, a laptop with the following
-at least the Intel sandy bridge 2720 or 2820 quad processor
-and nvidia graphics preferably the 460m, 485m is a bit much
-1280x900 display with OpenGL 2.0-compatible graphics card
-and 8 or 16 gig ram and Win7 64bit Pro
-and 2 internal 7200 HDDs minimum
