What I do is transcode a 10 or 15 min chunk...then multiply that. So if that 15 min chunk took 30 min to transcode, and I have 200 hours of footage...15min occurs 4 times in an hour, so I multiply 30 by 4 and I get 120. That's 120min per hour of footage. 200 hours will take 24,000 minutes to transcode, or 400 hours.

I did a test of this recently, with RED footage. Found that RESOLVE transcoded to Avid MXF much faster. I did the same 15 min chunk for testing.
