Dual 1ghz encoding times?
I am trying to convince my company to buy a Dual PM for our mpeg 2 encoding and DVD work. Our plan is to use a high end Firewire bridge to capture from our Beta SP deck. My question is what are the encode times with the Dual 1 Ghz. how long does it take to encode 1 hour of DV to Mpeg2 at a high bit rate. When using iDVD2 do you encode before burning, or is it an all in one process? Either way what are the times, and result. Thanks for any help.
