2 hours for a 30 minute render?

rendering 720x480 vid VBR avg 6k rate, progressive, 4:3 aspect ration.

Last nite it took no more then 30 minutes, today its moving extra slow saying 3 hours at times. All 4 cores of CPU are working almost 80%...any ideas?

Check and make sure that you didn't accidentally bump the Level control in the Track header.

BTW, for anything less than a 70 min. program, I use a CBR of 8,000,000.

also check the clips themselves to make sure you didn't accidentally lower the level on one or more. I've done that in the past and felt quite sheepish later when I realized my error.

Ok figured out my issue. I'm using a color correction AND NeatVideo for the entire clip. Just read today that NeatVideo is very processor intensive plugin.

For a test I rendered a 1 minute clip raw, in 16 seconds and with neatvideo and color correction at 16 seconds it was at 1%.

Guess you learn something new everyday.

I guess you do.
The other lesson learned from this is to give as much information as possible when you have a problem as it makes a diagnosis much easier.
Neat Video is well known as a processor hog.

Magi Bullet is a hog also. I love the white diffusion filter but it takes forever to render.

It's a lot faster if you have the full version and use one of the recommended graphics cards.
