How are your export times when using MPEG2-DVD with similar settings instead of using Frameserver and Avisynth?
What color correction was used? MBL or PR? What is your source codec? Length of the timeline? What video card and what disk setup?
Time line 2 hours Sony EX 1080 25i
Colour correction Premiere Three-way
Video card Nvidia GTS 450 with cuda hack
Black Magic EX sequence
Source hdd, 2 caviare black in raid 1- 4Tb
destination hdd raid 1- 3Tb
Time using Premiere dvd mpeg2 encoding only about 5 hrs.
That makes a lot more sense and could possibly be improved upon further without BM. So the long encoding times can be attributed to Frameserver/Avisynth.
One version of my video included a 4min section where one video stream had 3 soft edge linear wipes. That section rendered at 0.5 fps and the whole film took 17 hours to render. It is often said that you should have a cup of coffee while rendering, I could have gone on holiday!
While rendering the cpu meter shows 15% usage and the ram 45% are there any ways to use more of my computers power? Do AVIsynth and HC encoder make use of 64 bit computing and multi processors (like the i7)?
