Bill . I have made a video in Premier Elements 11 . Have added a disk menue . The video project I have made is nearly 2 hours long with numerous overlays along the way .
I have selwcte Disk . included title of disk created in disk menue . Have chosen Pal format . The little box says every things ready . I press burn and a pop up window says . "Indexing" and it seems to be there forever . What's happening ?
Ah, at the authoring stage. Thank you.
That will depend on several factors: the Duration of the Timeline, the Source Footage on that Timeline, and then the speed of the computer.
In the intital authoring phases, the biggest bottleneck will be the CPU's speed, and the installed RAM, when it comes time to write the Transcoded files, just before the actual burn, then the I/O (HDD's, controller type, speed, etc.) will be the biggest bottleneck. Once everything is ready for the burn, then it's just up to the speed of the burner and the blank media used, but that is a tiny part of the total time.
