Rendering Hell

I don’t have my laptop for the next few days; I feel so naked.

I’m currently editing Alan Dunkel’s music video for “The Waiting Game,” and the Hella Fresh feature film “Devious, Inc.” (A Samantha Sullivan Production directed by xuxE). Both are shot in HD on Sony XDCAM EX media.

So I’m rendering both down… initially rendering Devious on the G5 was going to take 6 days. That means I wouldn’t be able to edit this weekend; it would be ready to edit late Tuesday night. I moved it to render on my laptop, taking a paltry 3 days. So it’s sitting at home. Sad.
