How to speed up exporting and rendering?

Aug 25, 2010 12:05 PM

Hello all:

 

Can anyone offer any tips to help speed up rendering of edited pieces and exporting a completed project?

 

I'm pretty new at using Premiere (or any sort of video-editing software), but I'm pretty sure it shouldn't take 3 hours to output 2-minute video. But that's what I'm seeing now.

 

I'm working with 2GBs of RAM and a 64-bit OS. On Vista.

 

Any suggestions would be welcome.

 

Thanks!

    If these very limited specs are any indication of the rest of your system, yes, that is what you can expect, especially with difficult codecs.

     

    It makes a lot of sense with the info provided. If you want to know more, you have to tell us more. But a two minute timeline that takes around 180 minutes to render on a slow system, would take around 90 seconds on a fast system, it is a simple as that.

     

    Some suggestions... and answer at least the 16 questions at the end of the Wiki article.

    Look here: PPBM5 Benchmark

     

    but it boils down to an i7-980X @ 4.2 GHz, 24 GB DDR3-1600+, GTX-480, 12 x 1 TB Raid30 and a lot of tuning.

     

    What are your specs?

    Like I said in post #1, it makes perfect sense on such a slow underequiped machine that likely does not meet minimum requirements.

     

    If you don't know your equipment, use the link I gave you earlier, and post a screenshot of the results of this program: http://www.piriform.com/speccy

    tips to help speed up rendering

     

    As a general rule, the #1 thing you can do to speed up rendering is to get a faster processor.

     

    Adobe has added a sort of "1a" to that rule with the Mercury Playback Engine.  You can now also get a better video card to help speed things up.

     

    Either way it comes down to better equipment.

    Hey Harm,

     

    What do you mean by a lot of tuning? I'm thinking of buying a new machine, like the one you've just described.

     

    Thanks

    Getting rid of Windows crap, like Games and MSN.

     

    Disabling unneeded services.

     

    Removing unneeded autostart processes.

     

    Adjusting Windows overhead, like VSSAdmin, pagefile, temp directories and the like.

     

    Correct disk setup.

     

    Optimizing memory speed.

     

    Stable overclocking and modding the case to allow for low temperatures.

     

    Stuff like that...
