So I recently upgraded the following hardware components in my PC:
HD 5850 -> HD 7950
4gb -> 16gb
750gb magnetic drive -> SSD
Before i upgraded, when i'd render a video it would take ~18 minutes to render a 23 minute video.
Currently it takes about 40 minutes to render the same video. The source footage is on the 750gb magnetic drive, and I've tried rendering to both the SSD and the old drive and the render times are identical. The speeds i'm getting are very similar to the speeds I was getting when rendering with my processor only (amd 965 black ed). I've triple checked that i'm using openCL to render. The OS is on the SSD, as is the program, and it's the 64 bit edition.
The footage is all footage captured as MP4 from OBS and processed with handbrake to set it at a constant frame rate (29.97fps @720p). Output is the same format.
Any advice? Is my videocard just not supported even though vegas says openCL isn't available? Should I have my source footage on the SSD and try rendering to the magnetic drive?
