Im using Premiere Pro 1.5 in Windows XP Prof.
I have edited 2hrs movie. I have used about 20 default crossfade tansistions. There is 5 background mp3 songs plus the movie's original sound. Its taking about 9hrs. I have done several of these types of projects (2-2.5 hrs) and they are taking same 9-10hrs.
My PCs specs is as follows:
Pentium 4 2.8ghz
320gb hard drive
128mb graphics card
Im using built in mpeg encoder to output as mpeg2 format.
When rendering process starts, its takes about 4-5hrs to complete first 100% then again it starts frm 1% which takes about another 4-5hrs.
Is it normal?
