Export time in Premiere/ME 130+ hours

Adobe Premiere 6.0.0 and Media Encoder on Mac 10.6.8 using SSD drive for progams and OWC harddrive for projects/files.

I am working on CS6 CC, I finished a 20 minute edit. It has minor levels/3 way color, some warp stabilizer--but nothing external as of yet. I have about 5 video tracks and 10 audio tracks. This is my first export since upgrading to CS6--I am trying to export a h.264 HD vimeo file (tried both 720 and 1080).

My issue is that when I export either from premiere pro or from media encoder, the export time starts at about 2 and a half hours at first then slowly counts up instead of counting down. It has reached up to 130 hours (after exporting for 30 hours) before I stopped it to try a lower quality. I have been trying to export this project for four days. It seems that all three times I tried in media encoder, the time is still adding but the output preview is stuck on one frame (which was a different frame in each export).


I would say that I do not have the fastest and most upgraded computer, but I know that it worked fine before with CS5.

    Warp Stabilizer could be causing the long render times.

    Could be a corrupt clip if it keeps getting stuck on the same frame.

    Well, remove all effects as a test.  Report back.

    Is there some reason you have not installed the updates?


    All Adobe updates start here and select product, read to see if you need to install updates in number order, or if the updates are cumulative for the individual product
