    42 hours to encode SD AVI???

    Bob Sackter Level 1
      This has been an ongoing issue with this program. I edit longform concerts, usually around 2 hours. In this case I took a 2 hour AVI and replaced the audio and put a couple of simple title cards on it. First it took almost 20 hours to render. I set media encoder output for 2 pass VBR 3 meg average 6 meg peak and 1.5 meg min. and set to export to encore so I can add menues. It has been running for 26 hours with another 16 hours to go. Why does CS3 not use all the resources? I looked at the task manager and CPU usage is a 24% memory usage 1.2 gig PF .97gig There are no other processes running at all. I contacted support, but that was no help at all. There is a bottleneck somewhere, but I can't seem to find it. I can't believe that it should be this slow. If this is the case, I will be dumping this and switching to FCP and mac, as I have worked on that platform with far superior results then what I am seeing now. This is a brand new system that is only running PP and Audition. For what it's worth Audition is flawlwss and blazing fast.
