I just started to do some video editing again, but i have an issue and no idea what's going on there.
I just made a After Effects Project and animated the spectrum of a song I made, so nothing ultra complex, just some particles and this stuff. It is almost 5 minutes long and 720p. First I wanted to export lossless to later apply a codec in Premiere but i had to render over 10 hours! So i tried to render on low quality settings, but still the same. The only thing what has improved this was to shrink the resolution. But still much too long. It was about 3 seconds for at least one frame (of 9000).
I tried a lot including disc cache settings, multi processoring etc.
My machine is a Macbook Pro Early 2011, quad core i5, 8 gigs of RAM and an SSD AND onboard INTEL3000 graphics. Of course I cannot expect a super fast rendering but compared to my four years old windows desktop pc it defenitely is muuch slower.
Right now im rendering with dynamic link via Premiere directly out of the AE project because it is a bit faster, but still 8 hours. (The file will be only 64 Mbs :O).
Are there any suggestions? I have no idea how to fix this. I can't believe it's just the bad hardware.
Thanks a lot for reading this long text.
