I am currently doing scrolling titles for a full length feature film. Any idea why it takes so long in the background to render? Is there an easier way to do this?

I assume that you are using the title generator?

How long is it?

Is there anything underneath?

Hi Jeremy, thanks for responding.

Under Titles/Credits/Scrolling, it is about 3 minutes long at this point. The only thing underneath is a small Gap just so I can place the title on something until I insert some photos I want to use.

20-25 minutes or so. When I get back to work on it tonight, I can be more accurate.

Hmm. Doesn't seem right. Any special settings or options?

Nothing really, just changed the font (all titles use the same chalkboard font), the font size and the line spacing. The list of credits, etc., is fairly long though.

I guess I'm not sure.

20 mins for a 3 minute scroll doesn't seem right.

Try it with a different font.

Something sans serf and simple, like Ariel.

This is just a wild guess, but Chalkboard as a typeface is built around rough outlines. So maybe X is trying to calculate and render all those rough outlines as they're tracking up the background - and perhaps that's taking a long time?

If you switch to a simpler font and it gets much faster, then the problem is likely font related.

One thing I've noticed is that X tries to be very precise about doing what you tell it to do. And something seemingly like a font choice may have a large impact on how the rasters have to be calculated.

FWIW.

I would think about creating a separate timeline and exporting the credits as a ProRes QT and bringing that back in. It will use the GPU (as long as you don't use compressor) and might speed things up.
