FCP Seq to QuickTime movie problems

I have my timeline rendered out completely and now it’s time to make a QuickTime movie rather than send straight from the timeline to Compressor. Why Is this taking 5 hrs to render a QuickTime of my rendered timeline.

I’m on a MBP 17” with 4G of Ram.
The edit is Sony EX1 35mb Progressive.
The edit is 20mins fully rendered.

My understanding is, if I render out the timeline I should be able to make a Quick Time master very quickly due to the timeline being rendered out. Is this correct or does making a Quick Time movie involve re rendering.

Thanks

With Long GOP based formats such as HDV or XDCAM HD/EX you need to tell FCP to also render timeline areas which it can play back without render ie try setting your Render settings to also render "Full".

Thanks Andy,
My understanding is that I have render settings set to full but incase I dont where is this setting within FCP.

Cheers

Sequence menu >> Render Selection, Render All and Render Only ... those 3 each have submenu's where you select what you want to be rendered during the various render operations.
