Hey everyone,

I recently have bought an HD camcorder that records and plays back in full 1080p. I have already made acouple of movies with music, words and such. Whenever I export the movie in full 1080p 1920x1080 first it says it will take about 240 minutes then slowly builds up to like 720 mintues! I have cancelled it everytime just because it seems like it will never finish the export if it keeps climbing in a finish time.

So, what my question is, is, "Is there something wrong with what i'm doing, or does it really day like a day to export a 10 minute video in full HD quality."

Thanks.

I'm using iMovie from iLife'08 which I am told supports full HD res.
There is a 1920x1080 option under the quicktime export but it takes forever if ever like I said before....
