Hi i was wondering if it is normal for a fx-8350 to take over 3 or 4 hours to render a 21 min video that is 12.7 GBs to a MP4 format using Camtasia ? unfortunatly even when its on high priority it only uses 15-20 percent of my cpu and I'm pretty sure rendering uses a lot of your CPU. after I format it I will use AVS video converter to compress it (hopefully it can read it)
MediaCoder!! A bit complex to use....but very very powerful....can use all 8 cores of your chip.
Plus, its totatly free !!
PS:- MP4 is only a container format....compressed video quality will depend on which codec you use. For example, the H264/AVC codec can give you the same quality as older DivX\XviD formats, but at just half the file size. Both can be packaged inside an .mp4 container.
I think your current software is trying to encode with the XviD codec. IIRC that codec is not highly multi-threaded. Try switching to H264/AVC and see if it speeds up.
I dont have any screen recording software media coder understands it can't use camtaisas's format and i cant use fraps because I can't buy it yet do you know of a program that media coder will support its fille type outfut ?
well handbrake seems pretty good I tried it still only uses about 50% -70% seems like no rogram can max it out O.o but it looks like handbrake can only read fraps files which why I want to buy it any program can render a WMV. file.
