Hello everyone!
As the title suggests, I have a problem with exporting a video. The video is shot at 1080p and the project itself only has some cut videos stitched together, with some music and a watermark in the right corner.
I am trying to export it in h.264, 1080p 25fps, for Youtube. But it takes way eay too long. After 3 hours it only got to about 8%.
I have tried changing all parameters in the video output settings after searching for answers online but no matter what I do, it still takes at least 6 hours. I also tried Adobe Media Encoder and tried to turn of GPU rendering with no luck.

My config is:
Asus rog g551jw
Intel i7-4720hq
16gb ram
Geforce 960m 4gb gddr5
Samsung 850 evo SSD

Any ideas? I have found absolutely no answer to my problem online.
Thanks!

Any chance you have applied a Stabilizer to some clips, or Video DeNoiser, anything like that? Those things can take a very long time to render. Otherwise, 8 hours makes no sense - you have good hardware and it should take only minutes really.

Please post a screen gab of Export Settings if you can

Thanks

I haven't applied anything at all to the video footage. With these settings, it took more than 4 and a half hours to export a 362 Mb file.
I have tried changing everything, as I said, but to no result.
I will try reinstalling the software and see if it goes away.

What format is the corner logo? Best bet is a .psd or .png with alpha, at the correct 1920x1080 sizing so no scaling required in Premiere.

I see you have the export set to be a .mov file, but what you want for YouTube is just an .mp4 file. Also, for anything viewed online/computer you do not want interlacing (1080i), you'd want 1080p export.

For Export, use the H.264 > YouTube 1080p 29.97 preset.

DO not check "Max Render", that is for scaling output which you are not doing. Also do not check "Use Previews" - else you are compressing twice and previews could be of poor quality anyway.

Let me know how that goes then

Thanks

Just realized something - you said the source clip was 1080p, yet the Sequence in Export Settings shows Upper First fielding (1080i).

Try this - right click the source clip in Project Bin, and select "New Sequence from Clip". This will create a Sequence to properly match the specs of the source video. Now go back to original sequence and Ctrl-A to "Select All", the Ctrl-C to "Copy" contents of timeline, then open the new sequence and Ctrl-V to "Paste" contents.

Now you should have a copy of original sequence, but with correct settings. Then set up export as in my previous post.

Thanks

Than you so much!
I can't believe I haven't even thought about the logo. That was the issue. It was way to large, and I have just scaled it down with free transform the first time.

Now it renders the whole thing with better overall settings ( 878 MB) in less than 15 min.

Thank you very much!

Also....


Max Render Quality is not needed, really.

this might help further.

There are two "Maximum Render..." settings. Are you saying neither one needs to be checked if not upscaling?

Hey Duke....

maybe I shouldn't shoot form the hip on responses like that...


I think this thread explains it better than I can.

ok, I read the link. The only thing I'm not sure of is exactly what is considered "low color depth"? Should I assume (remember, I'm just a home hobbyist) that my Nikon D5500 produces "low color depth", in comparison to a RED or Black Magic camera? Or is low color depth present in video that was merely shot in poor light?

No rush. This is more just out of curiosity than trying to meet a deadline. btw, I did leave off maximum bit depth and maximum rendering and I didn't see much difference in rendering time compared to the same clip with both checked.

Hi Duke..


Bit Depth generally refers to how color is quantized during capture

think of a RED , GREEN, and BLUE stripe. Each stripe goes from a the darkest value of that color to it's lightest.


The higher the bit depth, the more steps or divisions in the stripe.

8 BIT = 256 steps (gradients) per stripe

10 BIT = 1024 steps (gradients) per stripe

so.....the higher the bits....the better the fidelity possible.

I'm not sure what the division is between low and high....


but I'd assume at this point 8 and 10 are probably low, 12 and above ae probably high.

here's another link for your review:

Ah! Once you used the word gradient it became much clearer to me. Now, my lowly D5500 does take 12 (and 14?) bit pictures. That's in RAW, so I'm going to guess that doesn't necessarily mean it does 12 bit video as well. I'm just going to go google it but I'm guessing it probably puts out 8 bit color so, bottom line, I don't need to check those "Maximum" checkboxes.

Thanks for the info and the link!
