I have a quick question. Mainly to see if my expectations are too high. I have a 2 minute and 41 second after effects project that has three video files (1080p) and three audio files in the time line. I am also doing some simple text animations and I'm using BOX BLUR for some of the type animations and CAMERA LENS BLUR with LEVELS when i fade in and out the Video.
OSX El Capitan
After Effects and Media Encoder 2015
2x2.4ghz Quad Xeon
32 Gigs of ram
ATI Radeon HD5770
I have tried: AE Project in 32bpc with Media Encoders Quicktime format and H264 encoding at 20mbps
I have tried: AE Project in 8bpc with Media Encoders Vimeo preset (single pass 1080p)
The question, is it common for this type of project to render in 1 hour and 45 minutes?
