    Hey fellow mac geeks:

    I’m trying to do something very simple in FCE (Final Cut Express 4.0.1) im just doing a simple picture in picture affect with two clips. (6min length) and thats IT!

    now when i try to export (in any format and pretty much ANY output resolution it takes 2-3 HOURS to render! WTF its only 6min of footage! why is this SOOO slow? i understand video rendering takes time. but a 30x film length to render time is RETARDED! ive seen videos of pros using my same MacBook Pro 17” with 2.66 core 2 duo chips render out even a hour long video with transisions and effects and cool things take only an hour or two to render.

    why is my 6min segment taking 3hours?

    there must be something im doing MAJORLY wrong here.

    any help appreciated
