Final Cut Rendering problem
on Oct 10, 2013 at 4:30:47 pm

Hi again guys ^_^
I am making a 30 sec video in FCP, and my problem is I put an image which is in PSD file type and it only has 4 images inside the PSD, so why my rendering time takes 1-2 hours with just 3 text and 1 backround on it?

What's the codec of your edit timeline? And if you're mistakenly referring to "exporting" as "rendering", what's the codec to which you're rendering?

I'm referring for rendering time and here's my settings
Apple/ ProRes 422 (HQ) NTSC 48kHz
NTSC CIR 601 DV (720x480)

what happen is I put PSD file with 4 images inside, resize it, then its moving slowly from right to left for 30 sec. then it takes too long to render each PSDs

Have you flattened the Photoshop document? If not, saving it as a PNG image is helpful in terms of speed, too.

what do you mean by flattened the PSD file? I don't want to do that because I'm going to animate those images inside the PSD

[Jefferson Andres] "...I'm going to animate those images inside the PSD..."

Ah, then you've chosen the wrong application for the job at hand. You'll want to use Motion for this project and not FCP. Or After Effects if you have it. FCP is the wrong tool.

Whichever tool you use, you can count on a good deal of rendering time. You've stepped out of mere video editing and into animation... and that takes time.

[Jefferson Andres] "dimension is 1500 x 1080"

If your time-line is NTSC CIR 601 DV (720x480), the dimensions of you PS files should be
DV NTSC 4:3 720x540.That's where your rendering problem is.

Cheers
Alexander
