The project I have been working on involves many unique layers that have been bunched into different "baked" composite shots in an attempt to avoid a software slowdown and also to keep my workflow neater. My question is am I slowing down the exporting process by embedding these layers together into many embedded composite shots that are used in another main composite shot? For this roughly 1 minute in length shot the exporting time takes around a minimum of 2 hours with just about any exporting settings. When I try to continue this embedding loop even further by embedding the already embedded composite shots together into one layer the exporting time increases significantly more to around 9 hours. I know this sounds a lot like the movie Inception lol but I am just curious as to why this is occurring so any knowledge or advice would be greatly appreciated!
