Render Times - Does this sound about right?

So, I think I got most of the hiccups sorted out with the new computer system. For reference, here it is again:

* * *
I am wondering if my render time now is about right.

I just did a short 2 min 44 sec project. Here were my settings:
-HD 1080-24p (1920x1080, 23.976 fps)
-None (progressive scan)
-Frame Rate: 23.976 (IVTC Film)

Render as settings:
-Windows Media Video V11
-8 Mbps HD 1080-30p
-Video Quality VBR
-Image Size: HD 1440x1080
-Quality 100%
-Rendering Quality: Best

File size was 1.13GB
The render took 11 min and 22 sec to complete.

Re: Render Times - Does this sound about right?

I think that's about right, given that you're using just a single hard drive for absolutely everything - OS, programs, pagefile, media, media cache, projects, renders and output all on the exact same disk. In addition, you're also downsizing 1920x1080 to 1440x1080. It could have been quite a bit faster had you added a second internal SATA hard disk for your media and projects.

Re: Render Times - Does this sound about right?

It's on the way. Should have the second drive installed within the next week. I just was itching to try out the new system.

I didn't realize I downsized things. Odd. Still new to this whole HD thing with Vegas.

I did want to ask, though, and not start a separate thread:
I wanted to share the vid here but am unsure the best quality render for Vimeo. I tried one but it looks horrible and doesn't fill the screen and doesn't even say it's HD.

Youtube, on the other hand, is telling me it will take about 8 hours to upload the clip.

Oy vey.

Anyway, for Vimeo and Youtube and such...what's the best render I can do to maintain the HD quality of the vid?

Re: Render Times - Does this sound about right?

Thanks for the suggestions. I guess being able to use the full 1080 would take forver, huh? Using the above settings the upload onto Youtube only took 20min...dito for Vimeo.

Here are the fruits of my first "loose test" on using the Canon T2i.


(why doesn't it give me the HD button on Vimeo, though?)

or for you Youtube folk:
YouTube - Winter's End - A Walk In The Hills Of Gatineau

Can be viwed at 720p.
