Encode Quickly to Lower Quality for Review
on Oct 7, 2015 at 8:03:35 pm

Hey guys, have a noob question here. I have 40+ 80gig .mov files on an external hard drive (G-drive 2TB w/FW800) that are too big for my team members to open on their work computers (8gig, i5 Dells) to review for edits (RAM gets bogged down on open or transfer).

I am encoding these videos from the hard drive to a lower quality using the YouTube 720p preset on a 2014 Macbook (16gig ram, 2.2GHz i7, 1536Mb Iris Pro Graphics) but the encoding is taking 2.5hrs per video. Are there any protips you guys have to speed up the encoding?

I don't care about the exported video quality as long as my team can watch the video and take notes for the editing team. We are on deadline and I can't afford to be encoding these videos for the next 2 days.

Thanks in advance for the help!
