  • Doing other things while Edius renders?

    Since ProCoder2 does not utilize all of my 8 cores, does anyone here do other tasks while ProCoder 2 renders a file? I go online, but haven't done anything else. I have a few cores available just sitting there, what shall I do? Any photoshop work??

    Yeah, I do labels (photoshop)for my dvds, cases, printing, get online like you. (-:
    BTW I don't have no 8 cores, only dual Zeon but it only use about 60% of my cpu so here I am.

      Thanks Khoi!

      The sad thing is I can't minimize Edius while it does it's thing, so it makes me think that something will go wrong. I never think that when I render in AE, because it quietly minimizes :)

      Thanks for the heads up, I think I'll do some stuff via Photoshop CS2, since I need OSX for CS3, but oh well :)

        I usually go get a sandwich or something to drink while my stuff is rendering. 8-)

          I have a second machine that's in use by my other Editor, but as always during renders I need to finish other stuff as well :)

          Nowadays with my system, when I do work in AE, it takes muuuuuuuuuch less time to render than anything else. I don't have any coffee breaks anymore :)

          MPEG2 encoding doesn't seem to have skyrocketed in speed with multi-core machines yet. I am doing 2pass VBR, and it's taking about 1hr 45 minutes to do a 1hr 58 minute timeline.

            It would have been very nice if we could open multiple instances of Edius...(like AE)

              Doing other things while Edius renders?

              Dave,
              Im not sure your post was meant to be taken all the seriously but in case it was. I bought a Mac Mini in addition to my I-mac and have both connected to my file server. So I capture on the mini and make DVDs while I edit on the I-mac. I use Edius to render to a AVI file back to the server then I import it into compressor 3 on the mini and let it convert it and make the disc. since I then can go back to my I-mac and start a new project I really dont care that much about render times on the mini.

              Just a thought.

                About the only program I won't minimize while it's doing its thing is Encore. I'm just superstitious about DVD burning I guess.

                I always minimize Edius while PCE is rendering. Of course the little render progress box won't seem to go away on my 4.03 system. When I move it out of the way, the Edius monitors also pop up. Annoying to say the least. Does that behavior change in later builds?

                Dave - I have core envy. I built the new quad box after the intel price drop, and it's very fast on AE CS3 -- But now I'm jonesing for 8 cores!! Oh well, $289 for 4 cores vs $2650 for 2 quad xeons...My gratification will have to be delayed :-)

                  I haven't been able to minimize Edius while it's rendering...do you force minimize it??

                  I love me cores! :)

                  Just to let you know about AE CS3, you'll need at least 1GB per core for it to be efficient in using multi-cores..so if you have 4 cores, then 4GB of RAM. 512MB per core is ok, but it's not the same as 1GB.

                  I've been doing AE work under OSX for the past month, and it's made me much more productive. Adobe just release 8.0.1 OpenGL fix and now I can use GPU previews as well! Rendering times have skyrocketed by...I don't even want to count. But it's a render farm under the hood.

                  I love the whole Adobe bundle, it's priceless. Haven't touched Premiere Pro...rather use Edius or FCP...depending on the project.

                    Skyrocketed... more rendering time??? or what???

                      Meant that the speed has skyrocketed into the moon.....as in it is very fast when using all cores.

                        I guess I don't minimize Edius while rendering so much as bring other programs up in front of it...Outlook or Firefox will obscure everything except that render progress box when I click on them in the taskbar.

                          I never, never get on line when Edius is running. or perform other task.

                            Yet another time having multiple monitors is useful!
                            Wow, I should go into monitor and video card sales!

                              You'd be a great monitor spokesperson :D

                              I do have multiple monitors but there is no way to minimize it, that I know of...it's always in the back.
