EMC 10 expectations


Hogg

Question

I just upgraded from EMC6 to EMC10. Yes, its been a while. I mainly use this to convert my home videos to a DVD format and I thought it took a while on 6, it takes at least 30 minutes longer with this newer version. I am sure that I have missed something, but the entire project takes around 3-3 1/2 hours. 1 hour to import the movie from my camera in DV-AVI, and 2 -2 1/2 hours to encode and burn. I am not utilizing the extra features in EMC10, just a flat convert

 

 

3ghz duel processer

1GB RAM

Gforce 8500 with updated drivers. (after the install, EMC suggested I update the drivers)

LG 20x DVD Burner

 

It seems the longest part is the encoding (1 3/4- 2 hours). This seems awfully high?

I go into MyDVD10 and choose ad new movie. I find the 13 GB file and add it. Add a title in the Mydvd title bar, and press burn. Everything is set to default. I made no adjustmens, but I am in the middle of encoding a file now, so I will have to get back to you on the other questions, once this has finished. Thanks for you quick responses.

Not on the same computer I hope. :o If you are doing other thngs like e-mail, forums, music, etc, then that will slow everything down and may result in a bad encode and burn.

My HP is Dual core 3Ghz with 4GB RAM. 2 hrs to 2.5hrs rendering a DV AVI for one hour movie is about what I get so I would say your render time is average. Unfortunately, dual core doesn't make any difference in render speed.

Not that long at all. Actually that pretty fast - 2 to 1 ratio.

 

The only other way is to import as mpg2 at the best quality and the program won't re-encode the file except where you do some editing. Unfortunately if you do any editing, VideoWave will be slower.

Something is not right there… That PC should be rendering at a 1:1 or less!

 

Of course that assumes correct interpretation of the sketchy info!

 

Otherwise, there is no comparison from V6 to any other product since then. V6 was one of a kind (thank heaven)…

 

I'll have to agree with James. How long is your video ? Not in size, but rather in time. A little more info about your computer hardware and type media being used would be of help.

Video is 60 minutes. Its on a miniDV 60min from a Sony HandyCam. Is it typical to have a 13GB video import? When I import the movie and save it to the HD, its 13GB for 1 hour of video? Not sure what other specs on the computer a needed? Its a pretty robust system, and seems to handle everything else with speed. Just the encoding. I might be importing the video wrong?

It looks like you are importing as an .avi file, which is what you should be doing. You must be connected via firewire.

 

Capture is 1:1 real time, so there is nothing you can, or should, do about that. 2-1/2 hours seems a little long for the encoding process, though.

This is going to take a long time…

 

OK you import it, it is one hour long.

 

NOW WHAT?

 

What program do you go into from import?

 

What do you do there?

 

What settings?

 

Are you using Hardware or Software render?

 

How do you burn it?
