To render and burn an hour


To render and burn an hour’s worth of video? I use Matrox’s Real Time Export to Disk, so it takes exactly an hour to render. Adobe Media Encoder is only 1 or 2 minutes faster than real time, plus I find it very unreliable: it has crashed my system numerous times. Then to burn, my burner is a couple years old, and it only burns up to 4x, however I burn at 2x just to be safe. Since I start the burning and walk away, I don’t really know the time it takes to burn an hour’s worth of video at 2x (maybe 15-30 minutes as a guess). But add that to the hour it takes for rendering and that’s how long it takes me.

I’m just wondering, how long does it take you to render to DVD an hour’s worth of footage?
