      I am a complete Premiere newbie, so I am still learning how to do this, but even I know that a 3 minute 4K video should not take 24 hours to export.

      Here's some information on the situation:


      Export settings:

      Using H.264 format with the YouTube 4K preset.



      Applied FX:

      Little correction to exposure, contrast, saturation, etc.

      Used Lumetri color to apply LUT

      Denoiser II at 200%

      Added a soundtrack mp3 file

      Using one adjustment layer for color grading and another adjustment layer to create a crop effect

      Added a couple text titles

      Slowed down one clip to 20% speed


      Source Footage:

      Slog2 XAVCS 60Mbps 4K video in a .mp4 format

      Frame size: 3840 x 2160

      Bitrate: 56722kbps

      Frame rate: 24p


      PC Specs:


      Radeon HD 7950 GPU

      8GB DDR3 RAM

      Windows 10

      600W power supply


      Let me know if you need any more information on my project, and I would appreciate any guidance at all! I am so completely new at this so I am trying to learn as much as I can.
