    Hi, iv been trying to render a 40 second wedding video on After Effects and its taking around 3 hours to do so. Iv tried different formats and settings but nothing seems to be speeding it up. Does anyone know how to speed up the rendering process?

    thanks

    get a better computer or change render settings.

    30fps, h264 and 720p or 1080p are very reasonable for render times for me...

    What render settings have you tried?

    How complicated is your comp? (tons of particles with trapcode particular maybe?, motion blur??? those are definite resource hogs)

    Are you utilizing all your available processor cores within preferences / memory & multi-processing?

    Although I think you might have a setting problem, you shouldn't be having any problems whatsoever with an i7 OC'd to 4.2GHz, go into your preferences and see what settings you have set.

    Have you tried H.264 at say 1080x720, 24fps? Those are the settings I use for HD YouTube without any problems...

    Maybe you don't have enough or are running out of ram, I always hover my mouse in the timeline or the viewport and do a crl+alt+/
    (/ on the keyboard) to release all the ram that was previously stored into memory while working.
