Anyone got it working? Tried and on export just get 0 byte files. Usually a vegas user but:
Gopro 7 min clip exported in h.264
Vegas - 15 minutes
PPro cs 5.5 with mercury hack - 7-8 minutes
Powerdirector - with quicksync - less than 3 minutes.
Now powerdirector is a last resort for editing (ok transcoding might be ok), but I don't normally transcode much. This is still all at 'amateur' level (for the editing/filming), but even amateurs don't like to sit and twiddle their thumbs
Final cut is out, am 200 % anti-'mapple'..
Haven't the dough for Avid (unless they have a trial? - willing to try - just want to stop switching between editors, and learn 'industry standard' - even worse in CG/3d 'land' ), but as in my webwork people expect ever-more sophisticated clips (simple webvideo now needs roto, greenscreen work, matte-painting etc...!!)...
Blame it on ever-more sophisticated vimeo/youtube clips if you will...looking for one NLE with fast renders.....bad enough I have to learn after effects/nuke/Max/Maya/Houdini/Boujou etc etc (ok exaggerating a wee bit!) to keep up with the competition...
