An optimized WHAT system?
Pentium 3 or 4 or i7 or ???

What's In The Box HP Mobile Remote Control
I'm just trying to get a ballpark figure. Currently, 20-minute clips are taking 3+ hours of rendering time. I just need to know if that's normal, and I have just have to live with that. Even estimates are helpful.
A good enough system. But time taken depends on what editing has already gone in the AVCHD clip. If any effects are added, if they are in more than one tracks, if there are titles, title templates etc, it could really slow stuff down. I would suggest doing all editing after rendering.
If that is what you are doing, then let us know. There are links that are available from the experts in this forum that talk about the minumum stuff you need to do before starting an editing session. Please follow them carefully, more so because we are talking AVCHD.
