Hello! I work as a video editor for a broadcasting company in Little Rock, AR. When I started out, I knew nothing about video editing, but I've worked my way up to being fairly respectible as far as general editing goes..but they have me stuck using Premiere Elements 2.0. My question is this..

When doing an hour long show, I'll get the dry video at 9, have the editing finished by 11:30, and start the rendering/export to DVD process..which takes from then til 5 o'clock.

What I'm wondering is, is there a faster way to get these shows on DVD? Isn't almost six hours kinda long for render/encode/burn? The computer has a Xeon 3ghz processor, 3 gigs of ddr2, a very large SATA harddrive..What can I do?
