CGM Aged Film LE Rendering takes forever
on Oct 10, 2011 at 3:59:26 am

Hey, I'm a budding filmmaker and I'm rocking Final Cut Express with a MacBook Pro 2.53 i5 Processor...

I downloaded the CGM Aged Film LE Plug-in and did all proper steps to get it in the plug-in folder...

NOW when I use takes FOREVER to render. Even a 10 second clip will take 6 minutes to render (and that's without tweaking anything!) I use MPEG Streamclip and have all the correct settings for the footage I shot (30fps with a Canon 60D and it's HD with the Easy Set-up on AVCHD- Apple Intermediate Codec 1920x1080i60)

I watched that awesome tutorial video on Creative Cow about the aged film look and when he rendered it took less than 3 seconds.

Am I doing something wrong? Or does it normally take that long? Also, I can hear and feel my computer chugging whenever I use that particular plug-in....and seeing that I got the computer just last year I don't think it's a problem with a slow computer. Is it that I'm using Express and not Pro?

I would appreciate any help on the matter!

If the plugin is an "fx plug" category of filter, it relies on the GPU of the computer for it's rendering. On a macbook, the graphics processor is likely not that beefy... so the render times are slow.
