  • Is this normal?

    While exporting a HDV timeline PCE. a file of over an hour takes almost 5 hours. Now with Encore it takes so long I can take a 1 week vacations and I'm sure when I'm back it's still not done. Over 7 hours and not even half the file has being transcoded.
    I'm about to hit the cancel button, but decided to ask first. This is not my first HDV proyect but all the rest was max 5 minute long so I'm mot sure if is normal or not. Another thing is tht I just got PC3 today and want to try the Bluray setting so Encore does not have to transcode it.
    My system is a Quad core 2.66, 4Gb Ram, 2 500 gb HHD.

    Another thing that making me scratch my head is that all four cores are max out, up from 86 to 93%... and is slow as a turtle.

    The file from Edius is a 1920x1080. So should I kill this operation right away or leave it? it may be done by maybe next 4th of July...

    What are you transcoding the HDV file to? MPEG2? What are your parameters to ProCoder? Are you exporting from EDIUS timeline or outside EDIUS?

      If your file is 1920 x 1080 it is not HDV. HDV is 1440 x 1080. Are you working with the correct presets?

        Thanks guys for checking this out.
        Now thats a good point, please bright my road here.

        The timeline is a 1440x1080, I export it with PC3 using the presets from Procoder page (1920x1080), should I had used the 1440x1080 instead?

        Now what issue will I get (if any) by using this (1920x1080) file.

        Thanks again.

          Just a thought...

          It sounds like your original footage is HDV (1440x1080) and you're using PC3 to up-rez to 1920x1080. A major task for any program. I'd expect very slow performance on any machine.

          Can you use SpeedEncoder to create a HDV .m2t file from the timeline, then use PC3 to up-rez in the background while you continue working or overnight? You can also archive the .m2t to tape or disc for future work.

            Question:: when you "up res" using procoder does the quality of the clip improve?
            Another thing I have always wondered about is when you have your project settings at say hdv and then you put a HD clip on the time line does Edius "down res" the clip on the fly? Likewise the opposite when the settings are HD 1920x1440 and you put a HDV or SD clips on the timeline are they "up resed".

            Dumb question I know.

              No wonder my PC was screaming... I'm encoding the timeline again, this time 1440x1080.

                And you achieve nothing by up scaling to 1920 x 1080 unless you intend to use that footage in a full HD res production or composition.
                In simple terms "upscaling" only duplicates pixels or enlarges them. Neither outcome is desirable but sometimes necessary. Your best quality only ever comes with acquisition, not in post.

                  Not that dumb...
                  I think Edius is geared for RT more than quality improvement. redgum is correct about the scaling clips to fit the project. A real benefit if you're on a deadline for airtime. It would be super-duper if Edius would be able to toggle the creation of "tweener" pixels to truly up-rez or scale for RT.
