Is it me or does it take way too much time to create proxies through PPro "Ingest" feature
So, I have a GH4 and I've been shooting 1080p mostly because I'm afraid my 2011 Macbook Pro doesn't have the horsepower to edit 4K comfortably (even the 1080p gets stuttery at times).
I've noticed the Ingest feature in PPro and thought I'd try it on the 1080p workflow in hopes it works well enough to consider 4k.
Well, I tried it for my next project (150 Gb of video files) and after 48 hours of encoding, it didn't even encode the quarter of the whole thing. It completed maybe 20 files out of 120+.
Am I doing something wrong ? It is normal to take this long for 150 Gb ? Is it just my computer that is slow for this stuff (dual core) ?
