Re: CONVERTING/COMPRESSING PROCESS VERY SLOW

Post by s55 »

Your running an encoding process (which is extremely intensive process) on an extremely slow CPU.

While you can probably get a few more fps by
- disabling the Decomb/Interlace detection on the Filters tab
- moving the x264 preset to faster or veryfast on the video tab
It's always going to be pretty slow on that system I'm afraid.
