shooting quad hd on on epic, 5:1 compression. doing rocket encodes to prores hq 1080p, and it's 2-3x slower than real time. just had a r1 shoot yesterday transcoding at faster than real time, can't really even play back in real time in RCX, build 470. is it the lower compression that is slowing things down, or does my rocket have issues now? if it's cause of the lower compression, gonna have to think about a dual rocket setup to get these encodes faster now...
8 core mac pro 2.93 ghz
16 gb ram
rocket in 8x slot
encoding from esata drive straight to internal 5 bay raid.
