    I'm just curious about it, this past 2 days I've being recording, last night I sat and started editing, when rendering it said that would last 4 HOURS! I don't know if it takes that long to render (1080 60fps) a 4 minute video with color correcting

    If you have suggestions on how to edit and how to export video would be appreciated

    my video settings are pretty similar to this guy:

    It totally depends on your render settings and your computer.... there are a few things to help, but that is the base line answer

    Based on you limited info I'd say it's your computer, I can render a 5-6 minute video in about 15 minutes at 1080/60fps, shooting with same settings. What are you capture (Phantom camera) settings? If you are going to render/export at 1080/60fps then do not capture at any more than that.

    YouTube likes 30fps apparently... so I do not shoot at more than 30fps for YouTube stuff and that will speed up the rendering A LOT.

    OS, RAM, CPU, graphics card, software, correction/effects... a LOT of variables.

    4 hours for 4 minutes sounds ridiculous though...

    With FCPX a 10 min clip exports in less than an hour.... a lot faster on the Mac Pro.

    Tomorrow I'll shoot @ 1080p 30fps and see how it goes from there, I'm gonna use color correction in premiere cs6 as I'll be recording video as the guy on the video at the start of this post

    I have a Haswell 3ghz i5 system. 5 minutes of video captured at 1080P 60fps, pulled from a 15 minute take, with modest transitions between clips takes me about 12 to 15min to render an mpeg4 file.

    Make sure the output settings are close as possible to the original - I've noticed any kind of change to size or FPS slows things down considerably.
    If you make several adjustments especially applied in layers it is going to take a while even working with 1080p - just leave it while you do something else.

    Hi! My post from a previous thread as the specs mean fast processing speeds:

    non sense.

    render time is related with many variables such as below.
    computer specs
    render software and codecs
    input video resolution
    input video fps
    input video bitrate
    how many layers you work within the project
    transitions
    effects such as sharpening, slow motions etc
    image processing tweaks
    output video settings and compression ratio
    how many bypasses you have when you render it out

    so to say 4 hours for 4 minutes is ridiculous is little bold. I have 3 minute clips rendered 8 hours, and I have a power pc with dual ssd, 16gb ram i7 etc etc .

    Read the OP... 1080p with simple edits and colour correction.

    As i said a lot of variables but 1080p source and nothing fancy in post 4 hours is a long render.

    Well I decided to upload this next video. The render took 1hr 16 minutes. I'll start looking for courses on how to better process videos in premiere cs6, maybe lynda.com

    Let me know what do you think about the final video, any thought or suggestion is welcomed!
