The Formula to calculate encoding minutes is as follow:

Encoding minute = Profile1[Source Duration * Output_Resolution_Multiplier * Output_Codec_Multiplier * Output_Resolution_Multiplier] + .... + ProfileN[Source Duration * Output_Resolution_Multiplier * Output_Codec_Multiplier * Output_Resolution_Multiplier]

Example

Source duration(minutes)
