Paan Kiowascreating an animated path / render-time is enormous!

Hello

I am working on a project in which I have 4 animated paths (on a map) that fill over
a time period of 45min.
There is no problem animating, but exporting.
When I want to export the animated map I get something around 90 hours of export !!!
It seems a bit extreme to me and kills my whole workflow.

I am running CS6 on a Quadcore Intel with 4GB RAM.
Not the strongest, still 90 hours is waaaay to much.

Is there any way or option to consider when working with animated paths???

thanks
Paan

Did you actually mean 45 minutes, not 45 seconds? If minutes is the case, the long render might be justified. Also the 4GB of RAM jumps out at me - you should have at least 8GB of RAM just to run CS6.

But now to the most important part - what codec are you rendering to? This will give us something to go on. Thanks...

thanks for the fast reply.

yes, it is actually 45 minutes!

I am going to AVID next step, so I was exporting in Avid DNxHD 720p 25fps.
Still I wouldnt get that much render-time if I was exporting normal videofootage.
It seems that the animation of the path takes AE way to much render-time.

Are there maybe any different methods in animating the path?
