I have a small project less than 5 minutes in length. I am using 7 video tracks (I have fixed graphics displayed in 4 TV monitors on a virual set plus titles therefore I need multiple video tracks).
I have 2 video clips I created using keylight in after effects to remove a green screen. Each clip is 1440x1080 29.97 and about 2 minutes in length.
Although the entire project is only about 5 minutes in length Adobe Media Encoder takes 16 hours (really, 16 hours) to output to H.264 (high def).
Can anyone offer any guidance as to how to start troubleshooting? Should I reset preferences, delete cache, etc?
I should also note that, while I'm not working on a powerhorse, I've created 5 minute HD videos on this PC earlier in the week in about 15-20 minutes. The only diff I can see between those and this one is the # of video tracks.
Thanks for the help. The sequence is 1440x1080. The virtual set is not big deal, just a photoshop image with a couple of tv monintors (transparency). Video track above that is my talent with transparency and 2 trackes below that are the psd images that are in the tv monitors (logos).
If I export just the video it exports in 5 minutes or so which is what I have experienced in the past so the issue is not with the video.
For testing purposes I am exporting to h.264 and choosing the straight youtube format but even this is taking 8-10 hours to render.
Any help is appreciated. I am already past my deadline.
