I have a 1080/29.97i timeline 51 minutes in length with source footage/media mixed between DVCPROHD 1080i, MP4 footage from Canon 70D and 5D Mark III and GoPro footage that was converted to .mov files in the GoPro app, plus a lot of .jpg files on which I’ve done moves.
I sent the movie to ME for 3 exports, one using the timeline settings; 1 for H264 BluRay encode and the other for an SD MPEG2 encode. ME tells me it’s going to take nearly 8 hours which is not normal for other projects I’ve done with similar mix of footage. Normally it takes an hour or less.
Anyone have any ideas why this is happening and what I can do to fix it?

Here are my export settings. For the most part the sequence was rendered, though there were two clips, about 15 seconds each that had a Neat noise reduction filter that weren’t rendered.
Essentially I used the timeline settings: QT, ProRes 422, 1920 x 1080, 24 bit, no limit on data rate, none of the boxes in the bottom panel were selected and Time interpolation was set at Frame sampling
For the most part the sequence was rendered, however there were two clips on which I used the Neat filter to reduce noise and one of them also had Warp Stabilizer on it. There were also dozen clips or so that had the Warp Stabilizer applied.
FYI the three exports all completed and are fine. The last time I saw before I let it cook over night was over 8 hrs. The time actually increased after it started exporting.
