Created for an Internet Video Production class at Columbia College Chicago. We create any kind of web show, then promote it ourselves as homework! Sweet class!

Did video at 60fps 1920x1080i in raw H.264 capture using iShowU HD

then converted to the new Pro Res LT for fast rendering with all the motion use.

Exported raw file using Pro Res 4444 Codec

then used Compressor with full frame settings to bring to 720p at 30fps

Did the music and voiceover recording in Ableton Live 8 using midi and a custom synthesizer.

    Thank you,but i,m working with a pc.

    the same principle adjustment should increase render speed on any computer with any program, lowering color bit always will yield faster renders. Although its probably more noticeable of a change on mac's. Since they are awesome... :)

    Well made. (A small point - the announcer seems to have a tendency to drop the "ing" endings. Like "editing" sounds a bit like "edideen". Probably a regional accent.)

    any chance on premiere? I've been looking for the equivalent settings, but can't seem to find them.
  • Alan Dennison 2 years ago
    I think its Maximum Bit Depth that your looking for under your sequence settings not sure though, havent used premiere in two years!
  • Great tip. Thanks for posting!

    Hi There, tried this and it did not work, my renders at 8-bit for my HDV sequence was actually 2-3 minutes faster then they were with an RGB render. How is it so?

    @Lisa La Rosa I noticed the same thing, I imagine that it is because it has to down-convert to the lower bit-depth when working with the higher quality clips, but who knows
