    Wildy different render times, same effects in comps

    popictures

      I have 30-40 comps all exactly the same except for length which varies from 30 sec -4min, most in the 45-90sec range. Keylight, a couple of masks, render to Avid DnxHD 175 w alpha.

      Rendered all day/night in one batch. Nothing else running on the workstation.

      Renders times range from 1 min to 2 hrs!! Seems unrelated to length of the comp. Random render lengths, e.g.:

      1h47min

      28min

      21min

      56min

      3min

      4min

      1hr 26 min

      34 min

      20min

      4min

      etc.

       

      Does this qulaify as a bug?

       

      HP z820 2x 12core/ 32GB RAM -25GB assigned to AE, render from/to 2 internal Hitachi deskstar 7200 HDD. Multi Proc off.

      AE CC 12.2.0.52

       

      Thanks!
