I realize you are using the term “render” in its most generic sense. Here is my timing for going from a timeline to a DVD disc.

I have not been able to find the source of the forum to reference this but, in Premiere Pro when you are just going to produce a DVD it is not necessary to hit the “Enter” key to render the timeline!

My last DVD was a 45-minute video from miniDV format. The time it took Adobe to use the Adobe Media Encoder to Transcode MPEG2-DVD with the “NTSC DV 4×3 High Quality 7 Mb CBR 1 Pass” setting in default was 1-hour and 42-minutes. The time for Encore 1.5 to write an image file (img) was 21-minutes and 3-seconds. I happen to use DVD Decrypter in my dektop computer to write image files to my Plextor PX716A disc writter and it is my preference for maximum usability in set top players to cut the disc at 1x.

The Premiere encoding (transcoding) and Encore image file generation are done on my HP zv5000z NOTEBOOK! It is an Athlon 64 3200+ running at the stock 2.0GHz with an external WD2500JB USB 2.0 drive for the project files.
