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!
