basically its taking the avi/divx format and converting to mpg2.

I did this very same video with my pentium and it took 40 minutes, Now, i Did this video with my opteron and it took 70 minutes.... is the pentium really that much better than the amd when it comes to authoring?

I'm using the same ram and same timings
I'm also using DVDSanta to encode my videos and it only takes me about 30 mins to encode a 1.26GB .avi file. I think the fact that your pentium4 was an HT - made a big difference. If you take a regular pentium clocked at 3GHz you will not see that much of a difference.
