It is taking 6 - 7 hours to render 2 - 6 minute 1080p videos down to 720p. Granted there are about 10 - 15 layers and a bunch of editing... but when I look at the performance monitor during rendering the intire resources used by my computer is around 45% - 50% for memory, processor, and little to no GPU is this normal?
It just seems really wierd to me. I have read the Adobe blog and watched the Learning Videos on the website on how to adjust the performance settings and have 90% of the RAM alocated to Photoshop. Any help would be nice or if this is normal that okay as well.
Thank you in advance.
::: PC Specs :::

Windows 7 Ultimate 64-Bit
AMD FX 8150 Eight Core Processor
16GB of RAM DDR3
AMD Radion HD 4200 (I know it's old but its apparently not being used much anyway)
C: Drive - 32GB OCZ2 SSD - Four of them in RAID0 (I've read that this could be a bad idea but i had them laying around and I needed more than 32GB)
Scratch Drive - 2TB older 5200rmp HDD
Rendering to and From - 1TB 7200rpm HDD
Yes, it's normal.
okay, well I'll stop freaking out. Thank you sir! Is there a reason for that? or just how it is?
It's PS inefficient pipeline. It resorts to treating this stuff like its normal images/ layers and goes back and forth a lot...
