I am exporting a sequence from FCE 3.5 with these settings:
Export Using QT Conversion…
Deselected "Prepare for Internet Streaming"
Size>Dimensions>"HD 1920x1080 16:9"
The export progress window pops up and tells me that it will take 9 minutes. Over the course of the next 2-3 hours, it bumps up to 4 hours or so. After letting it sit overnight, the progress window reads 2 days. I have tried this twice and I still get between 44-48 hours in the morning after it has sat overnight. Any suggestions why this would be taking so long?
13" MBP running 10.6.8
2.3 GHz Intel Core i5
4 GB DDR3 RAM
EDIT: I am not exporting it to a DV Stream. I accidentally put it as exporting to a DV Stream, but I was actually exporting it to a QT movie.
Render window after sitting all night (probably close to 15 hours)
