    MC5 slow export

    Hello, everyone. My name is Paulo. I'm working with AVID MC5 and with a Mac Pro 2x Quad Cor processor and 6gb Ram.

    I'm having some problems to export my sequences. Today, I've tried to export a 7min sequence, a tough sequence (with chroma key and fx), and MC5 estimated 4 hours to export this sequence. An important fact, I've had rendered some prevoius effects.


    My point is: There's something that I can do to dedicate RAM or Processors only to AVID?

    Another fact, my Mac is working with Lion OS (10.7)


    Thank you.

    What format were you trying to export to? A Same-As-Source Quicktime would be the cleanest export, and that should not take so long at all.

    Also note that Lion is not qualified as an OS for MC5, and that MC is very picky when it comes to OS versions. See the Avid Version Matrix.

    Thanks a lot Job ter Burg.

    I'm exporting in H264 (7000 data rate).

    I will take a look at the link you send me. Thank you.

    It's better to do it on an external encoder.

    Even Streamclip which is free for both Mac and PC.

    This is also using QT but minus MC.
