Video AI Processing Time

Hello - how long should it take to process a 5 minute video? The input video has a resolution of 1920x1080. I have a MacBook Pro with 32 GB of RAM and an 8 GB AMD Radeon Pro processor. It says it will take over 2 days? Am I doing something wrong? Support asked me to reinstall version 3.3.10, and I did - same.

The time may vary dramatically dependend on your hardware. Please tell us more about your graphics card. If your MacBook uses an integrated graphics it may take that long indeed!

Are you upscaling it to 4K? It should take a long time indeed on that hardware. Those MacBooks with AMD graphics are not known for great cooling or being great at newer AI tasks.

Interesting. No, not upscaling - 1080 to 1080. It is an integrated graphics card, but is that something you could get an external graphics card that would make it faster?

I’ve heard people on these forums mention wanting to do that. I don’t know if they ever did.

I would really love to use this software - when I first purchased, I got one video done and it was AMAZING! I don’t remember how long it took, but definitely overnight. Then with the updates for both the software and for the Mac, it just got worse and worse to the point that I can’t use it. It either crashes my computer or takes 3 days to process - I’d like to include this into my workflow for real estate videos (I use Photo AI for photos), but I can’t take 3 days to process a single highlights video, so if an external processor would work and I could include this in my workflow, that may be an option. As far as crashing and freezing, I’m in touch with support now.

absolutely yes! I have a Lenovo laptop with an RX Vega 8 graphics. It is so slow that I can not use it for Video AI at all.
