I am having a terrible time outputting a dvd with timecode burned in for client notes.
I have a dual core 2.3 mac tower
My source material is DVCPRO HD 1080i60 1280x1080
I have opened a hd timeline
I have created a qt movie of same
The qt movie is about 90 gigs
I am putting it thru compresor with timecode burn on picture
The time line is approx 70 minutes
I am creating mpeg 2
the mac wants 7 hours.
Could that be correct.
It is making a 3.2gig file
I have wasted so much time on this I am thinking that there has to be a better way.
That sounds about right. Encoding something that long, with timecode, takes a while. Unless you have a Quad core or Octo Core mac, where you can use QMaster to allow Compressor to utilize all the computer processors, things will take a while.
This is why I got a capture card and a DVD Recorder. Real time play out.
