This is rather ancient history - for various reasons I still use CS3, but maybe someone can help anyway.
I've imported a movie, set up a comp and exported it, and it takes about 40 mins, which is fine.

But I've got quite a few movies to export as separate comps, so I imported them all and set up a comp for each. Now each one is taking about 8 HOURS to export. If I remove everything from the Project window apart from one comp and one movie, it renders at a decent speed again.
What's going on? I'd like to be able to batch render all these comps rather than doing one at a time.
Thanks

"Export as comps"? I'm not understanding what you trying to do: What file format are you trying to export as?

I would likely suggest Media Encoder, but unsure of what you're trying to accomplish.

Difficult to identify the root cause without more info: system specs, sequence settings, project complexity, codec, etc. One definite issue is that CS3 was designed for a 32-bit OS, so memory is quite likely one of constraints. Also, HDD/SSD might be slowing you down. How full are your drives?

Sorry for unclear specs and terminology, folks. I'm turning a collection of ProRes LT and DV-PAL files into 720p AIC files.
I think I may have worked it out - I went to prefs and deleted all caches and databases, and moved them to my biggest disk (though I had around 70GB free on the disk where it was cacheing before).
It seemed to be rendering (I'm just adding some curves) at a more sensible rate (2.5 hours, rather than 28 that it was predicting yesterday), but I've just checked it and it's crashed! :-(
Thankfully I've been saved (again) by the wonderful JES Deinterlacer.

Another consideration is reading and writing on the same disc, it would be faster to read from one disc and write to a different one, if that is possible in your setup.
