well. its not as much as a question as much as seeking advice.
i didn't think id get as far as i did with the video editing as i am today. and recently put tuns into upgrading my PC to get the rendering done in a timely fashion. but still. it takes upwards of an hour and 45 min to render 30-40 min videos... arrrg...
the output is 720p 25 fps microsoft WMV 4.8 mbps
and input is FRAPS raw footage (about 4 gigs for 5 min... ouch)
even though my system is what i would consider overpowered for standard home use.
Video editing software is Sony Vegas 10
AMD hexa core 1055T
8 gigs of high grade DDR3 1600
about 3 TB in total HDD space (64g SSD 6gbps OS drive)
Nvidia 460 gtx oc 1gig GDDR5
(may even upgrade to 16 gigs of ram if that will help)
and my old system which i was wanting to use over the network is as fallows
AMD Athlon II, 460 quad core
4 gigs Generic DDR2
250 gig SATA II HDD
zomgonboard Nvidia geforce 8200
and recently upgraded my internet and my ISP hooked me up with a nice gigabit router to tie it all together with!
my question is. is network rendering going to help me?
or would other formats help?
want at least 720p
i haven't even figured how to use the effects. so its light on effects
most of my effects are sadly .png overlays and panning
