duration - converting avi to mpeg-1

greenspun.com : LUSENET : Video CD : One Thread


Processor: Celeron 1.1 Memory: 512 MB OS: Window ME HD: 20 Gig S\Ware: Adobe Premiere 6.0

What is the normal time to export a 15 minutes edited movie in Premiere to mpeg-1?

My computer says it 7 hours !

I have never used Permiere, but that seems long to me. TMPGenc (http://www.tmpgenc.net) could probably do it in 30 minutes. I suggest you either try to encode with TMPGenc, which does a very nice job of MPEG-1 encoding, or just let the Premiere job run at night while you are sleeping.

I've tried tmpgenc...it doesn't work for AVI files...for some weird reason it only converts the audio...

use Mainconcept MPEG Encoder it is much quicker then TMPGEnc this normally takes 5hrs to convert 500mb avi. it takes an hour with Mainconcept Encoder www.mainconcept.com

Try to use Premiere 6.5. From that u can export directly as MPEG 1 VCD/ MPEG2 DVD with Adobe MPEG encoder from the time line itself (entire project or work area)as max quality. It will tale only 20-25 minutes for a 15 minute avi/ tmelime to encode. Or no premiere 6.5 option, use TMPGEnc encoder to encode the exported avi. It will take only the same time as adobe.
