So, strange thing is going on. This clip took about 5 minutes to export the last 5 times, now the farther it goes in percentage the time increases exponentially, I've cancelled it 5 times already because the time just keep screaming upwards, just out of nowhere. The settings haven't changed, the amount of "work" done to the clip hasn't changed. The only thing I can think of is that the clip being slowed down to 50% in 2 parts somehow made it this ridiculous to render? It's only a 27 second clip, shouldn't be taking near an hour to render when the previous ones only took 5-ish minutes. The hardware can't be an issue because it wouldn't have been fine until the 6th revision of this clip. No other programs running. See attached screenshots please! Any input would be greatly appreciated!
Also, Win10 and latest updated version of Premier Pro and incase anyone think hardware specs in this case are relevant, this is what I'm running:
Computer model: Razer Blade 15 Advanced Model (Mid 2021) - RZ09-0409 Operating system: Microsoft Windows 10 Home (10.0, Build 19044) Processor: 11th Gen Intel(R) Core(TM) i9-11900H @ 2.50GHz 8/16 Motherboard: Razer CH570 RAM: 32 GB Hard disk1: Samsung Portable SSD T5 SCSI Disk Device (931.5 GB/External hard disk media) Hard disk2: SAMSUNG MZVL21T0HCLR-00B00 (953.9 GB/Fixed hard disk media) Hard disk3: Samsung SSD 970 EVO Plus 1TB (931.5 GB/Fixed hard disk media) Graphics card1: NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Laptop GPU (16 GB) Graphics card2: Intel(R) UHD Graphics (1 GB) Monitor: SDC SDC4143 (3840x2160 / 15.3 Inch) Sound card1: Intel(R) Corporation Intel® Smart Sound Technology for Digital Microphones Sound card2: NVIDIA High Definition Audio Sound card3: Valve Corporation Audio DDK Steam Streaming Microphone Sound card4: Valve Corporation Audio DDK Steam Streaming Speakers Sound card5: Realtek High Definition Audio
Ok, wow, I just put the 2 few second clips back to 100% speed and it rendered it all in about 7 minutes. Why does slowing down a clip add such a ridiculous amount of export time? Like almost 10 times the amount? Is there a trick people have to slowing down clips?
The original video was a "4K" Mavic drone clip, I have the sequence scaled down to be 1080x1920 for instagram reels.
