Hi, The concern I am having is my new projects are taking 20min to write to HD and my old projects took 4hours everything is the same between the 2 projects except the source material, the slow project has source material in NTSC and the fast projects source material is PAL. it is important to note that the final project is in written out as PAL. Why is there a dramatic difference in write times (I am writing the projects to Hard Drive at this stage.) ? Is this huge difference in write times because in the one project I have to convert the NTSC footage to PAL ? Or is something more problematic like the much faster projects are actually sourcing low resolution high compression preview footage that NERO makes and stores somewhere, maybe NERO does this for the speed of work flow interactivity of course this is an assumption as I don't know if Nero does indeed do this. Thanks in advance Justin.
