I'm trying to make proxy files for smoother editing in premiere and it seems to be taking too long. The estimated time to finish was originally 2 and a half hours but It's been 3 and half hours and now estimating 4 more hours to complete.
The footage I'm using is 2 hours and 40 minutes from a twitch stream. It is 60fps at 1280x720. It is encoded .h264 and the proxy file i'm trying to make is apple ProRes 422.
Here are my system specs:
OS: Windows 10
CPU: AMD Ryzen 3900x 12 core 24 thread. Running stock at 4.2 GHz
GPU: NVIDIA 2080 Super 8GB VRAM
RAM: 32 GB DDR4
STORAGE: NVME M.2 MP600 rated at 5000 gbps.
When I open up task manager and view the performance tab while media encoder is creating the proxy files it says my CPU usage is 8-10%, memory usage is 13.3 out of 31.9 (42%), and the GPU is at 1% usage.

Thank you for your system info. What version of Media Encoder are you using? And do you have GPU Acceleration enabled?
