[Daniel Benzler] "Are there any protips you guys have to speed up the encoding? "

Get a beefier computer. I'm assuming you meant MacBook Pro, which is fine for editing or rough cuts, but if you're looking for fast encodes or realtime playback while doing motion graphics or color work a MBP is not up to the task. They don't have enough horsepower. If you're actually doing this on a MacBook (not a Pro), then I'm amazed that it's only taking 2.5 hours to encode!

Encodes are determined by:
(1) Source Footage codec
(2) Encode settings
(3) CPU power of the machine (both speed and number of cores)
(4) GPU power of the machine (taking advantage of OpenCL or CUDA)
(5) Speed of the media device reading the data
(6) Speed of the media device writing the data
