So I've created a video, its in 1080p, it has a lot of images on it doing various things, fading in and out, moving around the screen etc. It also has a picture in picture video on it and two audio streams. I find that when I come to trying to share this as a master file even in the lowest resolution I can pick it takes hours and hours to export it! The final file is <2gb in size (if I try 1080p the result is only circa 6gb and I've never completed it, it seems to grind to a halt after hours).
I'm running on a macbook pro which is about 2 years old, with 16gb Ram, 1tb hdd with a good 33gb of space etc. Worth adding that when I don't have so many pictures the same video might take an hour or two but overall is much faster, is it just the sheer number of images I've got? If so is there a way to mitigate this? Not sure if relevant or not but I've also turned of rendering as having it on makes the mac start to sound like it's ready to take off! 😕
Any suggestions how I can speed things up?
