Hi all, thank you so much for all the help these forums provide.
I have been suffering 5-7 hour overnight exports for 20-40 minute videos for some time. Now this goes up to 12 and 17 hours.
I have a MacBook Pro 1.1GhZ i7 with Graphics card AMD Radeon HD 6750M 1024 MB, RAM: 10GB 1333 Mhz DDR3
Running Yosemite 10.10
I am using Adobe Premiere Pro CC 10.3.0 (2015.3 Release).
My camera is a Sony A65 producing .MTS AVHCD files. I shoot at 1920 x 1080 50fps because I often need to take stills from the video.
I am producing instructional videos for vimeo at 1920 x 1080.
The effects I use are an adjustment layer with lumetri color, brightness, and contrast adjustments.
I sometimes have a little bit of slow motion on a few clips.
Other media include a few GIFs 320x320 which I sometimes scale just a little bit (sometimes the slow-mo is on these).
and a couple of png files that I use in the title and credits section and a few other places. 1250x500 and 1198 x 441. These are sometimes scaled a little bit to fit with the video.
There are no modifications to the sound.
Project settings: Renderer: Mercury Playback Engine GPU Acceleration (Open CL): activated
Export settings: Use maximum render quality NOT checked
I have created new sequence based on clip. This didn't help.
I have tried export settings "matched to sequence". This didn't help.
I have tried 30fps. This didn't help.
I have tried vimeo export settings. This didn't help.
I have tried "use previews" checked and unchecked. This didn't help.
I have tried moving all the source files to the computer's HD. This didn't help.
Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.
