Premiere Pro Export Time is 2 hours for a 3 minute clip
on Sep 25, 2017 at 9:29:46 am

The export time for a 3 minute video clip is almost 2 hours and is getting increasingly difficult by the day because we have over 400 videos to export. Gulp.

The videos were shot on a Panasonic Lumix DMC-GH4 - 1080p, 50fps
The sequence settings are matched.

The export settings are:
Format: H264
FPS: 25
TV Standard: PAL
Profile: High
Level: 4.2
VBR 1 pass
Target bitrate: 10mbps
Maximum bitrate: 15mbps

The system has:
32GB RAM
NVIDIA Geforce GT 730
Intel Core i7 4GHz
Windows 10 PRO

This has been an extremely painstaking experience. Please help!
Will changing the graphics card to GTX1080 PHOENIX 8GB GDDR5X 256bit help?
This is the only possible solution we have thought of so far.

What effects are applied to the video? That would seem the most likely cause of the long export time.

Also, what is the hard drive arrangement? The video clips should be on a dedicated, fast drive. If using the system drive (C: ) and it's getting full, that would hurt performance.

Could we please see a screen shot of the Export Settings window, to review the export setup you are using?

Thanks

Hi Jeff,

There are no effects applied on the video yet because we need to figure out a solution to the exporting issue. The only thing used would be some text layers, some images, and 2-3 transitions. Nothing more.

Previous editors worked on and exported onto the server, which is NTFS formatted and now we are attempting to export on that and also on the (D:) drive the computer which has over 700 GB free space.

Hi Madhuri,

As Jeff requested, it would be great to see your export settings and provide as much detail about what's going on in your sequence (media type, effects, etc...).

You can also check out this link which provides a lot of detail on best practices for exporting from Premiere Pro/AME

Hi Peter,

Thanks for the link. Seeing if any of it works. Here's the export window. Ideally the export file should be 25fps and not 50fps. That would be the only difference. The export time says 50 minutes but goes on for two hours.

Just as a test - put 60 seconds of raw footage onto a timeline, no effects, no editing. Export to a LOCAL drive, not the server. What does it say for time?

There is obviously something going on...bottleneck exporting to server maybe? On what drive is the raw media kept?

Thanks

Jeff, I seemed to have found a solution!

The raw files are kept on the company server.
I tried what you suggested, 60 seconds of footage and nothing else.
Since what I was attempting to export was also similar, that didn't make much of a difference.
So I got a GTX1080 PHOENIX 8GB GDDR5X 256bit on my system and put the same clip on export and worked perfectly fine. Exported in less than 2 minutes now!

I really hope this lasts and is not just a temporary fix.

It seems that reading from, and writing back to the company server is a huge performance bottleneck. If you can work from FAST local storage (a dedicated video drive, not system drive) that should really help a lot.

Thanks

Hi Ole,

Tried that too. Didn't make a difference.

Hi Ole,

Tried that too. Didn't make a difference. But as mentioned below, I might have found the solution.
