So I've been recording gameplay & posting it on YouTube for a few years now. Primarily using Sony Vegas as it always seemed to be the community standard. Never really had an issue.
Since I built my new PC about a year ago, which on all accounts is superior to my previous PC my video render time seems to have slowed down quite substantially. Granted, I am now rendering in 1080p. BUT - Would that actually make much of a difference, opposed to 720p? I can't confirm or deny whether I've tried rendering in 720p with the new machine as I honestly can't remember. However, I did render a 1080p video on my old PC and it didn't take anywhere near an hour! I've only rendered about 10/15 videos on my new PC over the past year, trying to get back into it.
For example: - a 20 minute video used to take about 15-20 minutes to render on my old PC in 720p. - A 20 minute video will take almost an hour to render on my new(ish) PC in 1080p
Could this be due to new hardware not being.... As good? In certain areas? Or should I be experiencing a faster video render?
