I am exporting a 30 min AVCHD to QT NTSC DV widescreen. When I sent it to AME it was taking an extremely long time,it said it would take 8 Hours! When I put it to export straight from Premiere it only took about 25 minutes.I have CS5 on my laptop and it did not have the same problem when I sent it to AME, it only took about 20 min. I tried uninstalling CS5 and reinstalling but that didn't work. This is frustrating because I need to export a lot of files in different formats. Anyone know what can be causing this?
i fear im having a similar problem. I built 2 :15 spots in AE, dynamic linked them into Premiere for slates and timing, then queued them up in AME. they are taking over and hour a piece to encode into SD mpeg2.
Plus i opened the CPU activity monitor, and im only using 1/4 of my CPU power. (MacPro 2x 3.2ghz 10gigRAM)
i KNOW i was previewing the animation in AE faster then this.
