I’ll say off the bat that this isn’t a usability issue - it’s purely cosmetic, although it would be useful to have an ETA on rendering. I’m just reporting this because it seems to be a bug. I work with radio shows to convert recordings of their shows to streaming audio formats for podcasts. These are usually about two hours long each. I’ve noticed since updating to either 2.1.0 or 2.1.1 (I can’t remember which, sadly) that, when exporting a file this long, the progress bar on the export dialogue doesn’t move at all and the “Remaining Time” just increases steadily by about four minutes every second until the export finishes. This still happens after updating to 2.1.2, and it happens no matter what format I export it to (I use both Ogg and MP3). The good thing is that the file does still finish exporting anyway, so it’s just a cosmetic problem, but, at least for me, by the time that it’s finished exporting, the supposed remaining time has reached 40+ hours.

If this is just on my end, I honestly have no idea what’s causing it, but I’m hoping that bringing it up might at least help in some way.
