I have recently purchased a web cam that I am using to record our pool matches in the local club. I then want to upload them to Youtube. I didn't realise what a pain in the butt this is. If a clip that I want to upload is longer than 10 minutes then I have to split it but this takes forever. I am using Adobe Premier and for instance if I want to split a 16 minute 96mb clip in half it takes forever. What am I missing? Why can't a wmv clip be simply snipped in half with minimum fuss without all this rendering business that takes half an hour each time??
In fact I have just snipped a 15 minute clip into two parts and the 10 minute part has just told me that it's going to take 1 hour 20 minutes to render!!! The thing only took ten minutes to film in the first place! I am using the same (I think) settings as what the original clip is recorded in i.e. WMV at 960x720 res 25 fps 2500kbps bitrate. So why does it take soooo long to render?
Is there a program that is a bit simpler to use that I can just import a 50 minute clip for instance and just tell it to give me 5 x 10 minute clips with minimal fuss or time?
As it stands if I record a pool match and then edit the video and then wait for them all to upload to youtube I am looking at best part of a days work just sat around waiting!
Thanks in advance.
