I am rendering project in Vegas which has three video tracks (on on top of another) and I just discovered how dumb rendering script vegas is using. It cost me a lot of wasted time because of that. What's the problem: when vegas is rendering video file which is on top it acts like it is analyzing the files beneath (it slows down greatly) even though the transparency of all 3 files is set to 100%. When I cut out some fragment of top and second video file and vegas is rendering bottom file its speed increases 2.5 fold. This is just insane; I remember years ago when I was experimenting with Premiere that it ignored files beneath. A simple change in the program code would allow smart rendering.
