I'm rendering out a clip that is 800 frames visionlab says it is going to take 3 hours to render it.....since this is a clip that is less than a minute how can I get it to render faster? I did a clean reinstall last night, but it did not help....any suggestions?

There's not a lot you can do; visual effects take time. Its the nature of the beast.

A few things to try, though:

• Open the Preferences and increase the memory allotted to VisionLab.
• Render to a different codec, or at lower quality.
• If there are any unneccessary layers in the project, eliminate them.

Nothing. After that comes up once and then I restart it runs fine.
