    Exporting/encoding taking too long?

    Adobe Prodigy Boy

      Why is exporting/encoding a 3 to 5 minute video would take 45 to an 1 to finish?   I feel something is not right, this is taking too long.  The last 2 days, when I try to export videos that are 3 to 5 minutes long, it was very quick, it would only take about 5 to 7 mintues long. Now and before that it's always very long to encode.

      I am using an imac 27inch, intel  core i7,  8gb of ram and a 10.6.8 version.    My settings on the adobe premiere are usually  H.264,  5 bitrate, 1280x720  or 640x360. 2 pass, 23. 976 fps.    Can someone please tell me is it usually just like this long or I can set my setting so it's quicker and without losting quality?
