11 hours to convert avi to dvd

i have been using power director and the movie profile in nero vision to edit avi files. i found that nero vision does a better job with the focus effects. i am using nero vision to transcode divx to mpeg2. i just wondered if 11 hours was normal(?) to edit/transcode a 2gb file? i have a p4 3.0ghz cpu with hyperthreading and 2 gb ram. or should i be checking my processor to see if i have actually worked it to death. i still have 7 hours to kill while the movie transcodes, and i thought i would ask.
