    Three passes to "publish" to local drive?

    Why does it take three passes - almost two hours even in "Faster" mode - to export 38 minutes of SD material?  The first and third passes were better than 30 minutes and the second was about an hour.  This is the slowest I've seen on any MC product.

    Is it just me?  It's my home system running an AMD quad core @4GHz, 32G of RAM, NVidia GeForce GTX 570.  Cuts and dissolves.  A little EQ on some clips.  The CC was already rendered.

    Are you actually successfully publishing or does it make you force quit.    Also what format and codecs are being used.

    What was the size and video/audio or video only?

    The exports were successful.  I did it once "Faster" and once, overnight, at "Best", with no other issues than the (lack of) speed.  It was an SD project, video and audio, output as SD, as an h.264 .mov file.  I think those are the only options available in SD.

    The project has three video tracks - a base layer on V1, a couple of B-roll stills and short clips on V2 and lower thirds on V3.  V1 had CC, but it was all rendered before the export began. Two audio tracks as L and R, some clips had as close to a notch filter as I could come to with the Audio EQ tool.

    Almost to a final version, everything rendered and now taking four passes and 2hrs 30 min or so to export a 38 minute SD sequence.

    And, now I am getting reports from my full MC users of three and four passes to complete an export.

    What is happening?
