I have a 3:20 minute Quicktime video (1280/720). Why does it take all night (10 hours+) to optimize when imported into iBooks Author? Why is Author never updated (in over a year)? The video optimization progress bar is always inaccurate and worthless.

iBook, Mac OS X (10.7.5), iBook Author 2.0

    How much free space on your hard drive?


    How much ram in your Mac?


    How many applications running at the same time?

    On an older iMac I had an issue where the intro video optimization process just hung. I re-inserted the video and this time the % progress bar appeared and about 20-30secs later it was done.


    If that doesn't work for you, how about close iBA and reopen/reinsert.
