Drastic Export Times With AE Dynamic Links

Hello! First time posting!
I'm working with PP and AE CS6 for Mac, and I have a problem in export times when I Dynamic Link an AE comp into PP. Specifically, I have two projects currently, roughly the same length, that have Dynamic Linked footage in them. One project has multiple Dynamic Links, mostly color correction based effects with about three of them being rotoscoped based. The other project has one Dynamic Linked composition that's the entire length of the 7 minute long project that has one Keylight effect and some nestled compositions for reducing grain. When I export the first project (the one with multiple Dynamic Link compositions) in , my render time is roughly 2 hours. When I export the second project, my render time is roughly 40 hours. I've been having trouble find a solution as to why the differences are so drastic. Some more info:
The first project uses raw footage in .MXF format, both the raw files and the media cache folder are on the same local HD.
The second project uses footage in .mp4, both the footage and the media cache folder are on the same local HD.
