10 hours of rendering???
 
I rendered a 50 minute 1080 24p project last night, it took 10 hours to render.

I rendered as a WMV 6.4mbps project.

anyone else have that kind of render time??

Edward Troxel June 29th, 2009 12:06 PM

That is certainly possible depending on the source format, the output format, and what effects are used on the project.

Jeff Harper June 29th, 2009 12:23 PM

Ian, you did not say what you're running. A Pentium 4 might take a day to render your project, and an i7 will take only a fraction of the same amount of time...

Ian Planchon June 29th, 2009 12:23 PM

sorry, forgot to add that.

I was shooting on the ex3, so it was an MXF format, and there were no effects.

Ian Planchon June 29th, 2009 12:24 PM

hahaha, forgot that too.

I am running a quad core pentium. no i7 as of yet.

You're rendering time sounds normal to me. Ouch, that is a long time though.

ok, I wont freak about it too much then. but yeah, 10 hours was crazy, and I had two projects to render out.

If you are doing much more of these 1080 projects I can imagine you'll be upgrading your processor!

Perrone Ford June 29th, 2009 12:55 PM

Yep, 1080 is a long way from DV! :)

This is why I just ordered an octo-core machine. My old editing suite was set up for DV work, and it struggles mightily with the HD coming off my EX1!

I usually render over night as I sleep or when I'm out.

yeah, I rendered the first project when I was asleep, but forgot to check how long it took in the morning. when I saw the estimate for the second project, I got curious.

Jeff Harper June 29th, 2009 05:25 PM

While it is not HD, I just rendered a 01:35:00 minute project in 00:19:32. I'm still impressed by these i7s.

It's Windows Media Encoder that's taking so long, not Vegas.

Mel Enriquez June 29th, 2009 08:19 PM

NLE & 4+ cores

Will Vegas take advantage of more than 4 cores? I thought it was only up to 4 cores?

How about farming or network rendering? Running on Gigabit ethernet, would 2-3 or 4 quad cores (or i7s) be better and yield lower render times? Will Vegas treat each machine like it was a single core/task and will just rely on the results that computer gives out instead of counting cores?

If not, I guess the best recourse now is to go for i7s if you want to get the best speed at this time for 4 cores.
