  • Render Time

    The biggest complaint my News Department has is the time it takes to render out a completed file.

    We are rendering to a 1080i MOV file.

    Here are the computer specs:

    AMD Phenom II x 6 1055T

    8 gigs of RAM

    AMD Radeon HD 6450 Video Card

    ASUS M5A97 Mother Board

    Media drive is a 1 Gig 7200 RPM Sata Drive

    Would buying newer and faster computers speed up the rendering time? If new computers would speed up the rendering time, how much would it speed it up?

    Thanks

    What are the export settings? Details? How long is the export taking?

      Can you tell us how long the pieces are? What are the assets on the timeline.

      Also is export going via a san to shared storage?

        We are rendering to an H.264 format with high quality. I can't find the bit rate. A one minute clip will render in about 1 and 1/2 minutes. A 3 minute clip takes about 4 to 5 minutes. You can see it is slower then real time.

          The file is being rendered back onto the local media drive. We do not try to render across the network, or any external drives. The render however does go to the same drive as the raw material.

            If H.264 is your main output format an Intel machine with quicksync would be better.
            Also in EDIUS 6.5 you can use our H.264 encoder which makes use of quicksync.

              So you are saying that using an Intel CPU with Quick Sync will improve the render performance? Any idea how much it might improve it?

                There are several post in the forum that i7's (i.e. 2600k) that with properly configured QuickSync export (render) faster than realtime .................

                  On my system, it takes 20 minutes to render a 1 hr. timeline.
