Using econvert to HAP extremley slow, high cpu

Hi there. I am new to the video world. Just trying to drag regular iphone recorded vids to convert to HAP using eConvert. Thought I’d done this successfully before, where a 1 minute duration video would take a minute or two to convert to HAP…

Now when I try to convert ( same situation), It seems like a video conversion could take 30 min. CPU on status bar reads 550% (plus) during this process, don’t know if that’s normal…

Any suggestions would be great, thank you! :slight_smile:

That’s quite a heavy load indeed, it doesn’t ring a bell yet…
Do you get the same results with the AVF Batch converter?
Is it with specific files or with all files?

yes, seems to do this with all of my iphone vids. Hevc, h.264… just tried some sort of AVF batch exporter (also reaches around 500%cpu) and it quickly processes (1min or less) but it exports some sort of text doc, that wont open … I have no clue how this stuff works. haha.
can you send me a link to one that could work easily? or a beginners guide to what any of this stuff means or how it works :rofl:

That sounds very weird, could it be that it is simply missing the extension?
Try to add .mov and see if that works.
Can you send me an example file to that doesn’t work? (original and converted if possible, you can use wetransfer if you want).
