i'm new to premiere. i've been a FCP (not X) guy til recently. i've always edited on a macbook pro (intel7, 8G RAM, 2.66GHz) and had no issues with export time in FC. exporting a straight, 1hr clip (1920x1080) is taking anywhere from 3-8 hours if i don't use match sequence settings (H.264 codec, VBR 1 pass, otherwise default settings). if i choose to match sequence settings, it takes an hour, which is still too long in my opinion. i have 6GB of ram dedicated to premiere and no other programs running. is this normal or am i doing something wrong or ??? thanks...
I have found that it is sometimes necessary to clean media cache to enhance performance in Premiere Pro CS6. Under "Preferences" there is an option for "Media". Select "Clean" on the Media Cache dialogue box and see if that helps improve performance.
thanks for the forum doc. i think i gave all necessary info, but just in case...i'm editing an mp4 and looking to export it to an mp4, an mov, or some other quicktime based file. nothing in the edit, just two 30 min. mp4s combined into an hour long timeline. cross dissolve transition in and out. no filters.
