I am live capturing into an IO LA uncompressed 8 bit. The first show was 57min. The second was 1:48min. I went into FCP and edited, all was fine, final output will be on DVD. When I sent the program to compressor to MPEG it I got 40-70 hour estimates, I left it for 6 hours and it did not drop below 72 hours. This is an 8 core Mac Pro, 8 gig ram. The IO will not let me set up DV quality. What other settings can I try that are reasonible. I will have 5 more 2 hour + programs to capture. I have the drive space in the raid, but I cannot take weeks to mpeg the shows. is there a better way or is this the uncompressed world. I have never used 8 bit uncompressed before, it does not seem reasonable.
