What specification for a video editing PC?
I've just spent 20+ hours this weekend producing 7 DVDs containing photos from 7 year groups. There were 180 photos on each DVD.
I have Windows 7 on my Laptop:
Acer Aspire 7720
Intel 965 Express Chipset Family
Intel Core2 Duo T5250 1.50GHz
System Bus 667Mhz
L2 Cache Memory 2MB
I used Windows Live Movie Maker and Windows DVD Maker. The results are suburb but it took an age to do!
After importing the photos and music into Windows Live Movie Maker the Save movie.Burn to DVD took around 30-45 minutes for each video.
The sizes of the photos were:
Burning the DVD took up to 1h:45m to encode and burn each DVD. The actual burning to DVD was very quick it was the encoding that took so long.
What specification for a video editing PC would make this process much faster?
