    Insert Edit Taking Same Amount of Time

    Hi,

    I have a master in DNXHD 1080p format. When I do a short insert edit, the render time takes exactly the same time. What am I doing wrong here?

    Thanks,

    Asaf

    Which flavor of DNxHD is your OP1a master? (the export your trying to insert an edit to)

    When you try to export an insert edit, do you mark an in and out on just the clip (rather than the whole seqoence) you'd like to insert into the OP1a master and hit "insert edit export"?

    Hi

    It's DNxHD HQ. And yes I mark in/out on just the clip.

    Thanks!

    Have you rendered all of your video effects on your sequence? It might be for example that the insert edit is trying to render a specific effect which might be taking a while.. not sure though. 

    Exactly how long is the master OP1a export? and how long is the shot you're trying to insert? What's the render times for both?

    Hello Philip!

    The video file is around 25 seconds in length. To render out the entire timeline with no effects takes about 5 seconds. Then, I just literally swap out literally a different portion from the same clip and put it in the timeline and use the IN/OUT marks, select "Use Selected Tracks," where V1 is the only one highlighted and then choose Insert Edit. That takes 5 seconds as well.

    Hello, 

    Forgive me for pointing something out but if it's only 5 seconds, why the hassle? Insert edit might only make a noticable difference on longer sequences. Try again but with a 1 hour long sequence :)

    Hi Philip,

    i actually did try it on a 30 minute timeline and it took exactly the same. I'm not sure if this is a new bug with 2012.12.

    Let me know if you need the raw data to investigate it.

    Thanks!

    I mean, you seem to be doing everything right... before I do some tests on my end (I'm still on 2021.3) could I ask for your system specs? Exact OS, GPU Driver etc.

    Re: Insert Edit Taking Same Amount of Time

    Insert edit worked for me, although I have to say it's not a feature I use often as most of my clients prefer to watch H.264 previews rather than big DNx files. 

    My guess is it could be a bug, seeing as it's the first version available on windows 11 I'd say that's likely... although if anyone else on the forum has spotted something that i've missed please feel free to chime in. 

    It would be great if you could report this to Avid support by creating a support case:

    Thank you Philip.

    Can you send me your project file and Avid Mediafiles folder so I can test on my end to see if I can reproduce the issue? I'll setup a support case nonetheless.

    Sincerely,

    Asaf
