We're doing a 3.5 hour doc with hundreds of shots. We just got finished with coloring all of them thru NewBlueFX Color Fixer Plus, which changed all the rendered shots to un-rendered (because of adding the color). The timeline is ProRes422 HQ
When exporting to regular Quicktime, it says the export will take about 4 days. Any ideas on how to speed up this process?
Render first, then export. But you did use a rather render intensive plugin. And 3.5 hours of it...it might take a while. I applied a plugin called NEAT Noise Reduction. And only to about 30 min of a 51 min doc. Render time was 15 hours.
Speed it up? Faster processors are key....More RAM might help a little. If it is a plugin that utilizes GPU, a better graphics card might help a lot too.
