Again .. similar to another post in the PP Forum .. I find that my Activity Mnitor is only using 1/2 Core of my 12 Core Mac Pro .. so maybe the same reply I had previously applies here.
I just am curious if others are having long saving files times in AE.
Depends on how the footage is hooked up. If the source is just one continuous clip, the prograsms need to check and verify the whole clipe everytime and that can take a while, especiualyl when conform data on compressed media is involved.
Mylenium .. Does everyone have similar load and save issues?
I have clips and audio and Linked Compositions .. etc ..
I'm just not sure if my RAID is set up appropriatly .. and yes .. I have read the tips on setting one up.
I can load huge files back and forth with other apps on the RAID .. but it just seems so slow compared in AE while saving.
Believe me .. I'm not sure if I should reload the entire suite .. the RAID drivers .. buy another faster RAID card .. etc ..
Thanks for your comments again.
The problem is unnerving.
I have one clip .. Dynamically Linked from PP.
It is 44 seconds long.
There is approx. 18 similar files .. most are longer .. in the same 'batch' project file .. which is the only way PP and AE can handle the Dynamic Link correctly ( SEE my other post from a year ago )
When I make a small change in the 44 sec. clip and try to save the file .. it takes 7 minitues to save the project. ( the "Save Project" dialog box says 18 min. inaccuratly. )
This is completely unacceptable .. and one of my latest giant peevs about the workflow of this "Master Suite".
Again .. from my other posts .. there is only 1/2 a core processor ( out of 12 cores ) running in the Activity Monitor .. and I have a new fast RAID running ( at least I guess its fast )
I wouldn't be surprised to learn that it was the footage. What are you cutting in Premiere? Media container & codec?
720 x 480
48,000 16 bit
project audio 32 bit
Quicktime is a media container. DVCPro 50 is as codec. DV 25 is a codec. H.264 is a codec. So when you highlight a footage clip in AE's project window and read the info at the top, what codec does AE indicate for the footage?
