My company is moving over to Premiere Pro CC from FCP 7. As a relatively newer user of Premiere Pro CC (2014v8.1) I'm trying to figure out how to set my system for faster exports.
I edited a project in 720p (media was shot in 4K-Sony SxS) import and playback were fine until adding basic Color correction. Then extremely choppy playback until I rendered the timeline.
Exported the 14:27 timeline to XDcam422HD 60(50mbps) 59.94fps with a data rate 50.11Mbits/s.
It took 1hour and 18minutes to export!
For an experiment, I re-edited the exact sequence in Final Cut Pro X 10.10.4 (I have a copy on the same machine) Did the same export.
Both Files are identical in size, Mbits.sec, etc. The Export time was 7 Minutes!
I am sure there has to be a group of settings that I am not aware, that I haven't tweaked or modified to improve the export times.
Like I said the company is moving us to Premiere ProCC and I want to make sure I can export nearly as quickly. These export times seem unbelievably long and must not have something not set correctly.
My Sysytem is:
Mac Pro (Late 2013)
3.5 GHz 6 core Xeon E5
Graphics card: AMD Firepro D500 3072
Premiere Pro CC 2014:
Mercury Transit is enabled
13 GB allocated to PPro
Any help would be appreciated as we will roll this out division wide (about 35 edit stations) within a year.
Thanks in Advance
For those interested, This has been solved by removing the "adjust color" filter from my timeline and using the the "use previews" check box. Render speed increased to just 11 minutes. Thanks
