    Fastest Way to Render?

    I need to render some really fx heavy sequences. What would give me the shortest render times?

     

    * video mixdown (this is what I do for now)

    * simply render I/O

    * place an "empty" fx on the topmost V track - and render this one (never did this)

     

    Or anything else?

     

    All media is transcoded to DNxHD185 and I'm also rendering to DNxHD18.

    I use some Tiffen FX in this project.

     

    BTW, I tend to place every (track-)fx (eg Vignettes, Film Looks) onto new tracks - instead of nesting them. Does this affect render times?

     

    TIA!

    I prefer video mixdown because I eventually do a mixdown anyway before exporting to encode for final delivery (broadcast, YouTube, etc.) in Squeeze.

    I am with Terry.  Plus, if I am correct, I believe that a mixdown uses the max potential of your computer.
