FLV compression - **painfully** slow... anyone else?

Does anyone else find compressing Flash 8 video via On2 VP6 really, really, amazingly.... slow? Painfully slow if using Squeeze and annoyingly slow using ON2's stand-alone encoder. We're talking like 3 hours on a dual G5 2.0 via Squeeze.... for a 3 MINUTE video (two pass). Like taking a step back in time.

No,
I am running a quad 2.5 with 2 gb ram compresing a 33 min dv ntsc timeline to .flv ( 240x180 ) and it its going to take 45 minutes using FCP

Maybe it's the size I'm encoding? 480x360, 2-pass, best quality.

Nope, size shouldn't matter that much. Increasing framesize will increase encoding times of course, but for 480x360 compared to 320x240, the difference shouldn't be that extreme.

If FLV encoding is a major focus of your encoding, I would suggest checking out Popwire's encoder in Compression Master. There is a builtin encoder and a secondary encoder that they licensed and optimized for the G5 and Intel ($99 + the cost of CM). The Popwire encoder is incredibly fast; it is by far the fastest FLV8 encoder (based off of On2's encoder at least) I have ever used, on any platform.
