Thread: Am I not utilizing the power of my mac pro? exports taking longgg!

  1. Default Am I not utilizing the power of my mac pro? exports taking longgg!

    Hey there I just got my Mac Pro today and I thought I would see my exports go lightning fast however this is not the case

    some background info

    The footage is standard DV footage shot from a sony HVR V1U camera

    my computer is a mac pro quad core 2.66 with
    3 gigs of ram
    640 GB hard drive and
    ATI Radeon HD 4870 512MB

    I am running my footage off an 1 TB External Hard drive connected via USB

    The file I wanted to export was 10 minutes, and I exported using quicktime conversion...use LAN/Intranet>..(I always using this setting when I want to upload the video to youtube)

    This video took about 20 minutes to export...which is usually how long my NORMAL macbook to export files

    so my question to you guys is, do I have any settings wrong in my final cut program, that I am not utilizing my full potential of my mac pro?

    Thanks in advance!

    i would think it is down to the files being accessed via a USB drive, USB can only carry data at a certain rate... this is why people tend to use firewire Harddrives due to the datarate being way higher.

    as a test of your macs speed try exporting a 10min video from the mac harddrive, if the speed is good then you know it the USB.
