Thread: 3 minute video is taking 7 hours to export.

  1. #1

    Default 3 minute video is taking 7 hours to export.

    I've screen recorded an iPhone tutorial in 1080p and since there would be black bars at the side of youtube video I've added a simple background image and exported it in
    I did a similar one yesterday and it said something like 3 hours?
    What's going wrong?
    iMac late 2009
    OS X Yosemite 10.10.3
    3.06 Ghz Intel Core 2 duo
    4gb 1067 Mhz DDR3

    Not the fastest of computers but surely something must be wrong!

    How big is the background image? If it's more than 1920x1080 then resize it externally and re-import it. Premiere doesn't handle large images well and is re-sizing it every single frame instead of just the once.

    BTW - 4GB ram is right at the low end of what is acceptable for Adobe apps like this. You may want to look at adding more ram if you're going to be doing this a lot!

    One more thing to check - how much HDD space do you have? If you're down to your last few GB then things can go really slowly!

    What does your activity monitor / CPU / HDD usage look like?

    Default Thanks

    Thanks... The image is 1920x1080 and the hard drive has about 110 gb of storage remaining... I didn't intend to do much heavy work with it. I'll get back with the rest later. Thank you.

    Did you add any effects like blur etc?

    If you disable the background image does it export at full speed ?
