    Very slow render times....I think


      So I'm running an 08 aluminum (non unibody) macbook pro. 2.2ghz 4GB ram, 500GB 5400 RPM HDD (my 7200 momentus XT failed). I'm rendering about 1:30 of video with two filters of magic bullet looks, and one filter of Marcalli. Its HD video, 1440x1080 from my Sony A33. The videos take almost an HOUR to render that minute and a half or so, is this normal? I can't figure out why everything si so damn slow. I'm a photographer by trade so I'm used to faster renderings, but this seems a bit excessive.
