I am in the process of switching to filming with an AVCHD Canon XA10. I am finding that the export times in premiere are much, much longer than I imagined they would be. Could somebody give me some ideas for reducing export time?
I tried exporting a 3:40 long clip with these H.264 settings:
NTSC 1920x1080 29.97 fps deinterlaced
VBR 1 pass target 9.00 max 15.00
PAR widescreen 16:9, profile: main, level 4.2, render at max depth selected, use maximum render quality selected.
the estimated file size was 241mb, and it woudl take over 40 minutes !! I need to export about 90 minutes of video every day, so this won't work well.
I moved to the "HDTV 720p 29.97 high quality" H.264 preset, and it dropped it to about 30 minutes, but still incredibly long.
This is for youtube...as long as I can have 720p enabled (I don't really have to have 1080p), and it looks good, I don't need "top settings," but I desperately need to reduce the export time.
Any suggestions I could try?
All else being equal, there are only two things you can do to reduce export times :
1. Use hardware acceleration. (This will help with some things.)
2. Get a faster processor. (This will help with all things.)
