Im fairly new to this, ihave edited quite a few small 3-4 min edits successfully.this latest one has three layers and effcts wave etc and seems to want to take 4-6 hrs (depending on format to render to). is it my program settings,my computer settings? I use a laptop toshiba a300-600 4 gig ram 9400
dual core 2) i have tried to make sure the computer is running for optimum perfomance, are there some guidline settings i should follow for both computer and pp cs3.
Welcome to the party. One thing to remember - rendering is the devil, so get use to sleeping while the PC is crunching the numbers. Also hit the 'knowledgebase' & type, say, 'optimise cs3 xp' where you'll find a Adobe Tech note on recommended specs and getting things as good as they get.
