The encoding of the video would take about the same time the video is so if video is 2 hours and 20 minutes the encoding would take around that time. The PC that was used to test the encoding was done on an Intel Core i7 2.0 GHz, 8 GB Ram, 120GB SSD/750GB Hybrid Drive and AMD Radeon 6770 1GB. The time it took for an 8GB video file which time is 2 hrs. and 20 minutes took to encode to about 2 hours and 30 minutes which was encoding to an external drive which was quite good time which quality of the video came out great with no distortion of video or audio quality and you can enjoy the video or movie you have created.
