can i do this differently?
on Jun 27, 2005 at 8:26:12 pm

just wondering - i recently recorded a concert for a friend of mine. it was almost 2 hours long. i edited it in premiere 6.5 then exported it as an avi file - it took 3 hours to do that and the file ended up being almost 30 gigs in size. when i import that file as an asset into encore and prepare to make the dvd it takes forever! any suggestions as to how i might speed up the process and still have good quality res.

many thanks in advance for any advice!

It's not going to be fast without a real-time video card (like a Matrox, for example), but you might save some time by doing your MPEG-2 encoding in Premiere instead of in Encore. You basically export your timeline using an MPEG-2 encoder (I think Premiere comes with one by default), and then go out for the evening. A finished 2-hour MPEG-2 .avi file at around 4.5 Mbps speed should come in under 4.5 GB including audio.

Hope this helps!
