How long does it take if you save it as a prepared file to your hard drive rather than burning it to a disc?

This was estimated time for prepared file into the hard disk.

@Pietro-Vaglica If your video and audio streams are Blu-Ray compliant it shouldn't take more than, say, 15 minutes to prepare a 2 hour project.

In my experience DVDA7 takes a HUGE amount of time rendering compatible audio and video streams to an ISO or burning it. It usually takes overnight for projects that are around 20GB in size.

I always use complex menus with animated thumbnails though.

If I remember correctly, DVDA7 starts making the blu ray file system at 67%, so I assume it's starting the heavy work then.

thank you to everyone.

i was used to use ENCORE DVD for making dvd and bluray (now discontinued) and when audio and video streams are correct (don't need to recompress) he was exporting very fast (just a fast rendering and the time for write on disk).

for me was so strange this long time for export.

now i'm exporting a 20Gb Bluray and DVDA give me a 23 hours left...

I find a full 25 gb project takes a few hours, depending on your system. DVDA is only a 32 bit application so there are limitations.

But 23 hours!! Something isn't correct. Are you sure the files aren't being recompressed?

Mine never get re-compressed due to using the right presets but it still takes many many hours.

Although recompressing could add to the problem significantly.

If i check streams dvda give me green check on audio and video for every stream (just the menu need to be compressed).
 

I have have same specs in project and streams. And I made the files using specs from help references

I don’t know why

@Pietro-Vaglica, @Teagan, @EricLNZ I've just prepared a 20GB iso using DVDAS 5.0 build 178. It took 15 minutes 31 seconds. The project comprises 24 Blu-Ray compliant titles and 5 menus.
My system is a modest Dell XPS i5 with 16G RAM.

The only possible difference is that my DVDAS is patched with LargeAddressAware, which allows DVDAS to access 4GB of RAM.

DVDA 7 and DVDA 5 license codes are not the same. Also, all versions of DVDA are not able to be purchased or used for a trial anymore. You can only download it if you own it or manage to find and purchase a disc copy somewhere.

To my knowledge Movie studio platinum 13 includes DVDA5 while movie studio platinum 14 includes DVDA7. The newest version does not include DVDA of any kind, anymore. You would get a serial number for the editing program and another for DVD architect.

Sony DVD Architect Studio and Pro versions and VEGAS DVD Architect all have their own serial numbers. DVD A Studios used to come with Sony MS Platinums.

It looks like that makes a lot of difference.

My impression is that even with compliant files DVDA goes through them and copies them as m2ts files (for Blu-ray disc) and then copies them again into the final iso file. This is what takes time and requires adequate empty disc space.

21h42 for export a bluray with a single menu and 12 video (15/20 minutes everyone) without recompress audio or video.
