    Default How long should it take to render a 2Hour Movie for DVD?

    In Movie Studio 4.0?

    at 6%, it is suggesting I have another 3h21m left. That seems, long, but I could be wrong.

    It depends on your computer and the complexity of your project and your render settings.
    To give you an idea:
    I have a Intel P4 2.6 with 1G memory (I know, not the best but it was when I bought it - will be upgrading soon)

    *Project 1 was a 30 minute film - a very basic cut - took 1hr to render
    *Project 2 was another 30 minute film - very complex with lots of track motions, media generators and effects and use of the magic bullet colour grading tools - took upwards of 30 hours to render

    They were both done in Vegas 6 and both rendered out to MPEG2 with the same settings - a little different to movie studio but that shouldn't make a difference - it's all about how much number crunching your cpu has to do and how fast it can do it.

    Can't comment without knowing your specs. Sounds about right. but do yourself a favour and use a variable bitrate.
