      Adobe After Effects info: Updated about an hour ago.

      Video File info: http://gyazo.com/90a0b66c4dfa99d9d396eb561ac79a49 and http://gyazo.com/74ef689f606792b8a855e6e7d3c45396

       

       

      Problem: I can't render the effects I added. The render time is over 300 hours.

       

      Details: I got AE yesturday and I imported in a video that I already edited and rendered with Sony Vegas 12. I imported it into AE to add some 3D tracked text for the intro. I added all the text in and I'm ready to render. First try rendering I just get the same exact video I imported, no effects, no text, nothing different. The first render took about 19 minutes. Now the second time I tried changing the format that it would render to. I changed it to h.624 and got told it would take 434 hours to render, I waited about 5 minutes and that time never dropped. I stopped the render, looked online and was told restarting my computer might help. I restarted and tried to render this time in Quicktime, I got about 345 hours this time. Also I was only using 11% of 11.9gb of RAM according to AE.

       

      The video does not have that many effects in it at all. It is simply 3D text tracked to an object for about 7 seconds. I also just need the intro to render so I can put it back together in Vegas 12. Everytime it does render I end up with the same exact video with no effects.

       

      This is what I'm seeing right now: http://gyazo.com/f5fcc73636171c8213451288a507c2ae 14 hours to render a 10 second clip with only some 3D text. about 300 frames.
