Default Edius 5 Performance compared to PC 3.05

I recently rendered a HQ file of 41 Minutes with PC 3.05 and the blu Ray settings - it tooks 8,5 hours.
Now I rendered the same File with Edius 5 -in Vista Ultimate 64 Bit - MPEG output Module:VBR-25/35-TFF-highest Qualtity-MP@HL-GOP 15/3 open- AC3-2 ch.- 384kbps-
and it tooks 2,5 hours that is 6 hours less than Procoder 3.05.
btw:the output file is a Program stream if you "demux" this
file to elementary streams you can use it in Encore as compatible(without transcoding) blu ray footage.

That means there is a big need for an "Elementary Stream" preset included in EDIUS 5 Exporter.

That's correct - I strongly support it.

Hey your VISTA 64 is slow mate.
I just quickly worked out that my overclocked 3.2 Ghz QUAD XP here with EDIUS 5 can pump out the same spec 41 minute file in about 1 hour from a HDV timeline with CC and effects.

Not Vista is slow - I am using two old dual Quad Xeons(1,6GHZ) currently with 667 Memory.
I am waiting that Xeon Prices drop (E5462).

I believe Edius 5 is using all processors to encode - PC3 uses only 1 processor or core per file AFAIK so it should be a lot slower (in your case ~1/4 the speed). However PC3 will render 4 different files simultaneously from the queue which speeds things up when rendering multiple files.

Was there a quality difference?

ProCoder will use two cores for interlaced MPEG output. EDIUS v5 uses grid encoding technology, so it has way more concurrency. However, since each segment is separate, there's a small possibility of reduced encoding efficiency as each piece is being handled separately. Whether this is visible in the output remains in the eye of the beholder.

What about outputting a video only stream, then go back and output an audio stream?

Then you could dump them both in Encore and let Encore do the AC3 encoding.

I have wondered about this but can't try it for a while (my box is back at the "hospital") but Encore would take DAYS to encode a program stream. Is there any way to mute the program stream audio and just go with the separate audio stream?

Also, how do you demux? (Sorry if I sound like a dolt here, but if you have a program file, how do you demux it?)

Thanks!

PS: I have successfully used Premiere CS3 to make a blu ray MPEG file, importing a Canopus HQ file as the sourc
It encoded nearly in real time! And then it would automatically import into Encore.
