today I cut roughly 20-30 video clips and paused the immediate rendering to have them all render in succession over night…
Now whilst I cut and rendered single videos before (which took about 4-5 mins each) the rendering of the first video (about 1 min long) of that batch takes approx. 8 hours alone with all the other videos still in queue!
My clips are all 60fps 4k and between 15 secondes to 3 minutes each.
I am using Shotcut Verion 20.09.13
on a Dell mobile workstation with a Core i7 @ 2.7 Ghz (not ideal, i know), 16 GB RAM and an NVIDA Quadro M2000m running on Win10 x64.
I have three quesions:
1: why does the rendering of one single file (about 30 seconds video) take so much longer when there are about 20 videos queued up?
2: if i close the Shotcut project, will all the export/render tasks also be saved and restored upon restart?
3: if so, will all the cuts I made be still there so I can continue rendering
Alternatively: can I read out the information of the rendering queue, i.e. video 1: in @15 sec, out @55?
Alright. Have it rendering @work throughout the night and will see what the progress is tomorrow morning. Cutting the videos took a fair amount of today - but if until tomorrow morning only 4-5 clips have rendered I will terminate the process and try to get to the bottom of this.
incredible - about 20 hours after initially starting the rendering process within the job list there are 2 clips rendered (total clip duration < 2 minutes) and the third one at 44 %. I have screenshots attached with the job list and CPU usage within the past 20 hours.
framerate of the project is at 59.940060 fps, the Codec ist H.264
the source Clip also has 59,940060 -> Video was recorded on a GH5 and was shot at 4k 60fps also H.264
no preset was chosen - although I just noticed that the codec in the codec ribbon is at libx264 - if that might be an issue
initially haven’t messed with the settings in the advanced tab, hardware encoder was initially deactivated - although I switched it on after the post of @shotcut - the process had already been running for several hours by then
the data is read from and exported to a SSM ( SK Hynix SC300 512GB)
