I have a 27' iMac 5thGen iCore 5, 12GB RAM n 1TB ROM, dont store anthing there but apps because i have another 1TB external HDD where i save my work, not sure of the vid card. Not the best computer to work video with but it works for me.
I recently have been working on Premiere Pro CS5 n i didnt have this problem where it takes up to 10hrs to render a 30 mins clip. Have restarted the computer, have deleted scratch disks, have deleted cache n bins from computer to free RAM n others n i have tryed to work with the less possible layers but theres no progress.
How can i fix this?
With CS5 and above, there are two main avenues of decreasing export times. One, get a faster CPU. Two, get an nVidia graphics card with CUDA capabilities.
Note that the first will speed up all exports, while the second will only speed up exporting under certain conditions.
