I want to render a video of a series of JPEGs (36 in this case, 1920X1080) with anywhere from zero to 3 sound files with each pic and fade transitions. How long should this take? I let the render run for over 12 hours, but I finally had to close (task manager) Photoshop to do other stuff. Is this normal? How much time do I need to allow?
What are your specs?
OS version, PS specific version, HD free space, RAM, Graphics Card specs and overall PSD file size.
This could be a simple matter of the sound files - what are their file sizes (MB) each?
Running Windows 10 Pro, version 21H1. Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-7740X CPU @ 4.30GHz. 4.30 GHzThe main drive (solid state) has 95 GB free, the data drive has 208 GB free. 32 GB RAM installed. NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti graphics adapter.
The .psd file was 25.9 mb.
I appreciate the following doesn't address your issue directly. You could build this very quickly in After Effects if you can't get this working in Photoshop. The following video shows you how to achieve most of this...
Create a Slide Show in After Effects
Thanks! I may try it, but from the video, After Effects still seems to lack some of thre features I need (at least the video does't say how to add multiple audio tracks, which is really what I am after).
You can easily add and adjust multiple audio clips in After Effects if you wanted to explore that.
Thanks. I will play with that some and see if I can get it to render a video.
