I am encoding the next quality in the sequence, same file, 320X180 400kbs, 52 minutes left. My CPU is pegged at 100% for all 8 processes, 5.6GB ram in use.
So far the things I have been trying is creating a RAID, moving scratch disks, and asking for help
What is OE?
BTW I looked at the article, CPU affinity is set to all 8.

Upstream you say "Processing .mts files 1080 60i" and the message I am replying to you say "encoding the next quality in the sequence, same file, 320X180 400kbs"
Going from HD down to 320x180 is a HUGE change... so taking a long time is not a surprise
When I go from AVCHD 1080i30 (60i) square pixels, which is 16:9 interlaced 29.97fps 48khz audio to a DV NTSC Widescreen AVI file, the process is about 2 for 1 - a 12 minute test video took 6 minutes to encode
My computer is listed in my notes http://www.pacifier.com/~jtsmith/ADOBE.HTM
I think your time is a function of what you are doing
And... OE = Operator Error
ATM it is processing a 25 minute file at 720p 1100kbps which is taking 50+ minutes to encode.
I am encoding the next quality in the sequence, same file, 320X180 400kbs, 52 minutes left
Encode settings would be helpful. Encoding a complex timeline with 4 video tracks, consisting of AVCHD 1920 29,97P and 29.97i, XDCAM-EX HQ 1920 25i, HDV 1440 25i, DV PAL 25i, with numerous effects, transitions, keyframes with bezier curves, and exported to H.264 with HDTV 720p High Quality encodes nearly real time here.
Single track, Only effect is a color correction to brighten it up a little. Single audio imported mp3 16 kbs. I can encode the same file with AVS Video Converter in under 25 minutes, but with no color correction. Basically I am only trimming the start and finish of a file, editing the audio in soundbooth to take out the rumble of the air conditioner and exporting. Exporting as FLV with settings already mentioned.
Odd to assume OE
Odd to assume OE
With a likelyhood of over 90%, based on the questions posed here and the limited info supplied?
BTW, what do you mean with ATM? Adobe Trade Market, or what?
ATM = At The Moment
In response to John's idea about it being a big shift from 1080 to 320, I am now building the same project without resizing video, still 1080 at 2000kbs with a 25 minute video. Encoding time 1 hour 15 Minutes.
That sounds too long for your system.
Have a look at the second included link in this link: Some suggestions...
and if you have more than 40 - 50 processes running, start cleaning up. Otherwise post the requested results.
