      Maybe you guys can help me with this.  I have a single ProRes 4444 Quicktime movie in a comp. No effects, no scaling. Just re-rendering the Quicktime to another ProRes 422 Quicktime.  It's about 5000 frames @ 1600x1200.


      So it starts of blazingly fast.  The Est Remains shows 3 minutes! Yay!


      Then about 1/3 into it... the...render..... starts....to .... slow..... down....


      About the half way point, Est Remains: 14 minutes! Boo!


      What's going on? Why is AE slowing down on a pure no effect, no compositing render?  How can I fix it?
