    Does saving video/rendering take 4 hours?

      I just bought myself a brand new computer because I couldn't do anything with Adobe Premiere Elements 12 on my old computer.  Here is what I have on my new computer if this helps.  I am not a technical person so I have no idea anything about anything technical.



      4th Generation Intel® Core i7-4500U (1.8 GHz 200 MHz 4MB)

      Operating System

      Windows 8.1 64


      Intel® HD Graphics 4000


      4.0GB PC3-12800 DDR3L SDRAM 1600 MHz

      Hard Disk Drive

      Hybrid 500GB 5400RPM + 8GB SSHD


      I am trying to do basic editing.  I have a bunch of little .avi files that I am trying to upload and edit into one long family video.  I've done that, edited out what I want.  Added some text title dates and I am rendering/saving as an MPEG file. 

      It takes 4 hours to render to an MPEG file?  OMG!  And then I wanted to eventually download it to a DVD.   Does it have to the the 4 hours over again?  And it's very slow.  Is it supposed to be so slow?
